The Meuse Cycle Route | From Vlaardingen to Hoek van Holland

Cycle path, Hoek van Holland

For cyclists of all levels, the Meuse Cyle Route follows one of the most important rivers in Europe

From the plateau of Langres to the town of Hoek van Holland, you may discover the Meuse as you have never seen it before. Go ahead, step on your bike and discover 3 countries (France, Belgium and Netherlands), by cycling over 1152 kilometers of marked roads and 30 stages, which will take you through the many towns and villages spread out along the cycling route.

Stage From Vlaardingen to Hoek van Holland
This stage takes you along the New Maas, the Scheur and the New Waterway. The bustle of the harbours alternates with the green of the recreation areas along the route and the historical towns of Vlaardingen and Maassluis. These towns have long been associated with fishing and shipping. The end point, Hoek van Holland, has quite a different character again, as it is a bathing plate on the North Sea, where you can also view ships along on New Waterway. This is why it came to be called the “Gateway to Rotterdam”. A very unusual attraction is the enormous Maeslantkering flood barrier, built to protect Rotterdam and the harbours against the effects of heavy seas.
