Around the river Vecht

2 hour 30 minutes (43.0 km)

The Dutch Water Line's main weapon was water: the defences strung along a long line of forts, canals, sluices and dykes. These could be used to inundate land to stop the enemy in its tracks. Part of the Water Line runs through land managed by the Regional Public Water Authority Amstel, Gooi en Vecht. The River Vecht and Vecht lakes played an important role in the Water Line.

Discover the Water Line by bike and learn more about the fascinating history.
