Cycling Past Fortresses

If you wish to dive into the history of Utrecht and the surrounding area, take a cycling trip along the Stelling van Utrecht, east and north of the city. You’ll see all kinds of things that remind of the New Hollandic Water Line: from fortresses and sluices to inundation channels.

“From fortresses and sluices to inundation channels: the cycling route along the Stelling van Utrecht shows you how the Netherlands has protected itself by means of water throughout the years.”

During the cycling trip along the Stelling van Utrecht, you’ll discover how the Netherlands has protected itself by means of water through the years. For instance, you’ll see inundation channels and sluices that were used to flood specific areas, fortresses and hiding places. A number of fortresses around Utrecht can also be visited, such as Aan de Klop, Blauwkapel, De Bilt and Lunetten. It’s great to discover the unique story of each fortress. Start your cycling trip at fortress Aan de Klop, which also has a brasserie.
