This "tour of the IJsselmeer" leads you through the rich history of the former Zuiderzee, which was only tamed last century by the building of the Afsluitdijk. With the LF Zuiderzee Route you discover what the showdown between man and nature has yielded. You cycle over large areas of reclaimed land and hydraulic engineering works. During the 440-kilometer route you will also pass medieval trading cities, the former island of Schokland and many characteristic fishing villages. A truly stunning tour!
