This shortened Land of Fortresses bicycle trail is a perfect combination with the ferry to IJburg, Pampus and Marina Muiderzand. After arrival in Muiden you have 2.5 hours before the ferry departs again. You can cycle this route in 2 hours.
The Land of Fortresses bicycle trail takes you past the majority of forts and fortifications of this region (including Muiderslot) that together form part of the New Dutch Waterline and the Defense Line of Amsterdam. Also, there are several restaurants along the way. We are excited to now offer you the full experience on your tour!
