Cycle over rolling hills, past vineyards and with a view of the rivers; you can see so much natural beauty in the Nijmegen region by bike. Choose a route that traces the centuries-old roads the Romans took, or a route along the water’s edge for endless diversity. Every bend reveals something new: meandering dikes, abandoned islands and picturesque sections of reclaimed land. And you never know, you might find yourself face to face with Konik horses. Spoiler alert: it really is just as beautiful as everyone says!


Discover the Betuwe region

You can savour the scent of the blossom in the spring, and it’s a terrific time of year to walk or cycle through the sea of pastel colours.

You can buy all this delicious fresh fruit in local farm shops and from stalls at the side of the road, or why not pick your own at relevant farms or on National Pick Your Own Day? The Over-Betuwe cycling route takes you through the beautiful region!
