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 IJmeer.
Muiden - Autumn 2020
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 centre of the city.

There are not many citizens in Muiden, but on a hot summers day there may be queues at the restaurant tables.
The city is popular and people often travels to Muiden from far away. .
Even on a rainy day Muiden is worth a visit..
It's allways a pleasure to me to visit small towns like Muiden because everything seems to be so peaceful and relaxed.
