This route also shows how Leeuwarden has been surrounded by terp villages for centuries, which are now part of the city. Through the terp village of Goutum, you ride to Swichum where you can take a moment at the Romanesque church that was also built on a terp. Wergea is the next village on your route. If you’re interested in history, then we recommend visiting the regional museum in the Ald Slot with its traditional rooms. You leave the terp landscape behind a little further up. You leave behind the twisting roads and start cycling through landscape characterised by long straight lines. The roads start winding again near Weiden because the landscape was formed by the watercourses in this former marshy landscape. After the journey through the Nieuwland and along the Zwette, you can relax on the terrace of WeidumerHout eatery. The cycle route leads you along Bears, Boksum and Blessum, until you return to Leeuwarden.
