City to Sea - short


Bike Tour: City to Sea - short - 3 days

A quick intro to the Netherlands’ northernmost province. Get to know the city then marvel at the seawall, mound villages, churches, gardens, ‘borg’ villas and a bit of the Wad. This will have you wondering about the rest of Groningen, something to put on your list for next time!

Day 1: Arrival Groningen
Day 2: Groningen - Pieterburen
Day 3: Pieterburen - Groningen

Day 1:    Arrival Groningen

Arrive in Groningen, check in then take off to see the city. Rest and relax on a terrace at the Vismarkt or climb up Martini Tower for fab views of the city.

Day 2:    Groningen - Pieterburen
52 km

Take in a bit of the city then roll off into peaceful green countryside. The busy university vibe gives way to wide open space and marvellous mound villages like Middelstum and Kantens appear. This is the real Hogeland, all lush and green. From Usquert far-reaching views reveal Noordpolderzijl on the dike with the Wadden Sea just beyond. Pause for some refreshment at ‘t Zielhoes then cycle a section outside the dike, testing your legs against the wind. This evening, rest and relax in Pieterburen before your departure. 

Day 3:    Pieterburen - Groningen

Wake up to a peaceful morning in Pieterburen and set off for Kaakhorn, riding among huge grain and potato fields to ‘unknown’ villages like Westernieland and Den Andel, secrets known only to artists. Roll onward to Onderdendam’s beautiful spot on the Damsterdiep and follow the water’s edge to Winsum, recently voted the Netherlands’ most beautiful village. Wind through more waterscapes along the unique Reitdiep / Hunzedal, then take a short boat journey for lunch at the famous Cafe Hammingh or Garnwerd 'aan Zee'. Pedal into the city of Groningen on the Pieterpad pilgrimage route. Then, sadly, it’s time to go!
