LF Frisian Coast and Middelzee weekend route

(145.0 km)

Yet to make plans for the weekend? Why not set off with your touring bike or e-bike and spend the weekend cycling this 145-kilometre route along the Frisian coast and through the Middelzee area.

This varied cycling route leads through the Wadden Sea UNESCO World Heritage Site and along the banks of the former Middelzee estuary, now the green heart of Friesland.

The route will take you across an old sea bed, through ancient mound villages, along the banks of Frisian waterways and lakes and through countryside known for its meadow birds. More than enough natural beauty and cultural heritage to delight both nature lovers and culture lovers!

You can start cycling the route at any junction. Park at one of the Tourist Transfer Points (TOP).
