Cycle route highlights:

Heesterveld Creative Community

The strikingly coloured building of HCC is a living and working place for artists and other creative people. It's one of the examples of the neighborhood's vibrant architecture. Next door you'll find Oma Ietje, a popular local hangout.


The Gaasperplas is a nice setting for a long break. The large artificial lake was created for recreational purposes, such as sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, sunbathing and swimming. If you feel like something typically Dutch, go to the other side of the Weespertrekvaart canal for the old Gaaspermolen windmill dating from 1707.

Foodhallen World of Food

This is the most delicious stop on your route: street food from all over the world in a former car park. There are culinary delights from Mexico, Peru, Ghana, Syria, Thailand, Indonesia and many more.
