The golden age and royal The Hague by bike
The Hague is the royal city of the Netherlands. In the city centre you can already easily find a couple of palaces used by the royal family. When you go beyond the borders of the Hague centre a series of palaces, mansions and castles from Middle Ages to Golden Age and Industrial Age. All hidden from view by lush shrubs of rodendendron, lime or chestnut trees. The castles and palaces are connected by beautiful cycle paths that lead to estates, parks and gardens. Reason enough to explore the surroundings of The Hague by bike.
Beer of The Hague windmill and castle
The route of the bike tour The Hague windmill and castle takes you to different windmills. You might have heard of water mills or flour mills, but do you also know how the windmill is related to the production of beer before and during the Golden Age? Let’s see some Dutch windmills and find out what they do and how they work. Talking about beer, we’ll also pass by a castle that used to be the house of a Dutch beer brewer. Maybe a good time to have a beer/ coffee/ lemonade stop?
Full day cycling The Hague and surroundings
On the bike tours and team events of Verita’s Visit we take our time to explore. There are multiple stops enroute in which you connect with locals or have time for a typical Dutch bite or drink at a local café or restaurant.
