The Hague bike tour - typical Dutch food stop

Dutch pancakes. Not the American one, more like the French crepes. Something in between. And apple pie. Cold or warm creamy chocolate milk.  On the most popular The Hague bike tour you'll eat typical Dutch food. In a place that looks a lot like grandma's home. Your Dutch grandma.

The real The Hague bike tour with Dutch food

"This is like a real cycling tour!" Questionmarks are all over my face when I look at her. She laughs. "In most city bike tours the guide stops every five minutes to tell something. You stay in the city centre, don't really get anywhere. This is an ideal tour with kids as we actually cover some ground ánd get to know more about life in the Netherlands."

Typical Dutch food stop The Hague bike tour

The best stop on the Sea & the City The Hague bike tour for kids is the food stop. Ah, who am I kidding? The best stop for everyone is the food stop.  Often, when I stop at the water tower and explain that 1.3 million people living in The Hague and surroundings get their fresh water from the dunes the question the kids ask is: "Is there some food nearby as well?" Then something starts to tickle inside - I'm a real foodie-. "It's just around the corner, let's go!"

Food motivates people. You should see how fast we get from the water tower to that cosy place that looks like grandma's farm! The red-and-white curtains, the wooden picnic tables, the cosy garden with view on the ponies. What's not to like?

The menu is full of typical Dutch food: from fries with kroket to authentic Dutch pea soup. The pancakes and apple pie usually are the winners. Warm and with whipped cream. And for drinks: a good Dutch beer or a chocolate drink. The typical Dutch, nice and creamy one. I enjoy watching my participants eat and always wonder: will we continue the The Hague bike tour city & sea? And how? :)

Amsterdam beach cycling route

When I take the Amsterdam beach cycling route I forget about everything. It's the variety of landscapes that attracts me most. Dunes, North sea coastline, picturesque villages, green meadows and forest. And hidden behind the trees castles, houses with thatched roofs and churches. A Dutch fairytale starts here. Read more
