The LF Maasroute offers a beautiful insight into man’s relationship with one of the most important rivers in the south of the Netherlands: the Maas. You cycle from Maastricht, which is (more or less) where the river enters the country, to Hoek van Holland, where it flows into the sea. To top off your adventure, you continue a bit inland to the ‘Maas City’ of Rotterdam. The signs will show you the way.
During your bike trip you’ll come to realize what it means to live near such a river. It dominates the landscape, resulting in particularly beautiful views. From ancient fortified towns and fertile fruit orchards to typical Dutch vistas featuring dykes and cows grazing in the meadows. You won’t be able to stop taking pictures. The LF Maasroute is 480 kilometres long and forms the Dutch part of the International Meuse Cycle Route, EuroVelo19.
