Cycle routes

Explore more of Amsterdam with our Cycleseeing routes. Each trail will take you off the beaten track to discover old and new architecture, urban forests, beaches, polders, parks and waterways. The idea is to take your time and enjoy the scenery. Just see what you feel like seeing. On all the routes we suggest places to eat, drink and rest. There are shortcuts and detours for extra special attractions. All routes are offered in the (free) route planner tool Komoot.
