Cycling in Limburg
North- and Central Limburg: ideal for bike rides or a cycling holiday
Anyone who thinks Limburg is all hills is wrong. You can cycle along plenty of flat roads in North- and Central Limburg through very varied surroundings. One moment you can be cycling through breathtaking woods and the next you can be cycling through one of Limburg’s characteristic villages.
Cycling network of numbered intersections
North- and Central Limburg has an extensive cycling network of numbered intersections, the fietsknooppuntennetwerk, stretching for some 1,000 kilometres. This simple signposted system gives cyclists an infinite number of possible routes. Little ferries take you across the river and many of the routes are for cyclists and pedestrians only. A unique feature of cycling in North- and Central Limburg is that its network of numbered intersections links up with the German and Belgian networks. You can drink a Belgian beer and eat German ‘Kuchen’ all on the same afternoon.
