Hotel Goud en Zilver is happy to give you tips about Gorinchem and the Gorinchem region. When you visit our hotel, there are many fun activities that you can plan. In this article you can read about the most beautiful cycling routes in the Gorinchem region.
Biesbosch National Park
De Biesbosch is a protected nature reserve that has had the status of a national park since 1994. The beautiful surroundings of De Biesbosch can be explored perfectly by bike. The park is a dream for real nature and cycling lovers. The area consists of a maze of small rivers, willow forests and whimsical creeks with crystal-clear water. The nature of the Biesbosch itself is therefore best experienced from the water in a boat or canoe. In the area surrounding the National Park, one can enjoy the beautiful surroundings with old dykes, small villages and a watery environment.

The Linge is the longest river in the Netherlands and flows in the Betuwe from Doornenburg to Gorinchem. The Linge landscape is largely protected and falls under Natura 2000: the network of protected nature in Europe. The river is most beautiful between Gorinchem and Geldermalsen. The winding road through flat Rivierenland introduces you to intimate dike villages and the many fruit trees lining the road.

The Dutch Waterline
The Nieuwe Hollandse Waterlinie is a unique historical line of defence dating from 1815. The line is 85 kilometres long and consists of around fifty forts and five fortified towns. In the past, the line served as a defence with water as its weapon. Nowadays, the Waterline has a new function as a cultural-historical experience. It is a beautiful area where history can be experienced to the full. In 2019, the Nieuwe Hollandse Waterlinie hopes to be included on UNESCO's World Heritage List.
