Icon description route Description

Begin your bicycle tour at the impressive Fort near Edam, a part of the defense belt around Amsterdam and a UNESCO World Heritage site. This fort tells stories from the past, from military strategy to arms storage. Let the wind carry you further north towards the Fort to the north of Purmerend. Located in the unique Beemster polder, this fort offers a view of the once-important Dutch defensive lines.

Further along the bike ride, the silhouette of the Fort near Kwadijk looms on the horizon. The unfinished fort, a unique piece of history in the midst of the North Holland landscape, was once intended for the protection of major access routes. This historical route not only connects the forts but also the beautiful farmlands, waters, and villages that together determine the charm of this region.
