The flat landscape in Midden-Limburg flat landscape is pleasant to cycle through. Here you can catch your breath. There are many culinary possibilities and numerous historical sights. Shopping city Roermond with its world famous Designer Outlet Center has even more strong assets. Via the beautiful North Limburg Maasduinen landscape you enter the province of Noord-Brabant. The City of Den Bosch is one of the most beautiful cities in the Netherlands. it has a beautiful town hall and the St. John's Cathedral is also worth a visit. A visit to Den Bosch or 's-Hertogenbosch is not complete without having tasted a high-calorie Bossche Bol. Finally, in Zuid-Holland you'll find typical Dutch landscapes with river dikes, but also the metropole Rotterdam. Finally, you reach the estuary of the river Maas at Hoek van Holland.
