Cycle route Weesp - Muiden

The first route I will describe is a very short one because there is only 3 - 4 km from Weesp to Muiden. This cycle route is good when you for example are short on time or if you have small children on their own bikes. It is also very easy to use because you just have to follow the river Vecht from Weesp to the see.

The small town Muiden lies at the mouth of the Vecht and where the river discharges into the Markermeer. In Muiden you can see a lot of boats and The Muiderslot, which is a well preserved castle from the Middle Ages.  Muiden is a cosy place and you won't regret the visit.

The cycle route:

When you come from the center of Weesp turn left after you have passed fort Ossenmarkt and follow the river Vecht. On the way you will se a lot of houseboats on your left side. After about 4 km you will se a sign: "Muiden". Follow the sign and you will soon be in the center of the city.

Since I drove a long the river Vecht for the first time a couple of years ago I have loved to watch the traffic and the life on the river.

There are not many citizens in Muiden, but on a hot summers day there may be queues at the restaurant tables.

It's allways a pleasure to me to visit small towns like Muiden because everything seems to be so peacefull and relaxed.
