Cycling on Vlieland
Cycling on Vlieland is one of the best ways to explore the island and discover its beautiful nature. With more than 40 kilometers of bike paths, the island is easily accessible by bicycle. Whether you are looking for a relaxing bike ride along the dunes or a brisk ride through the woods, cycling on Vlieland is a special experience.
A popular bike route, for example, is the one to the Posthuys, located on the west side of the island. This historic building from 1662 once served as a stopping place for postilions and is now a cozy café-restaurant with a terrace and a beautiful view of the Wadden Sea.
Another beautiful place to visit while cycling in Vlieland is the Torenvijver. This pond lies in the middle of the dunes and is surrounded by trees and shrubs. It is an important nesting area for various bird species and it is therefore wonderfully peaceful and quiet in this area. Here you can enjoy the nature around you and completely unwind.
A sight not to be missed while cycling on Vlieland is the Vuurboetstuin. This beautiful botanical garden is located near the lighthouse and can be visited year-round. The garden is decorated with all kinds of plants and flowers that thrive in the island's salty climate. In spring, the garden is at its most beautiful, when all the flowers are in bloom and the splash of color beams down on you.
Besides these beautiful places, it is of course also wonderful to just cycle through the village. For example, you can visit the cozy stores, cafes and restaurants that the village has to offer. Or you can just wander around the narrow streets and alleys and enjoy the atmosphere and the beautiful old houses you encounter. All in all, cycling on Vlieland is a wonderful experience you won't soon forget.
