Cycling along Almere waterways, nature and distinctive architecture

3 hour (40.0 km)

This cycle excursion covers all the elements of Almere: water, nature and distinctive architecture.
Flevoland rose out of the water. But there is still plenty of water left in and around Almere, from marshes to excavated recreation lakes and waterways. Lots of special bird species know how to find that water, and beavers also swim around there. On the banks, distinctive architecture stands out. Did you know that Almere is the third city in the Netherlands with unique architecture? World-famous architects like Rem Koolhaas, Herman Hertzberger and Liesbeth van der Pol have realised creations from their drawing boards here. And complete residential neighbourhoods have a special and unusual architecture.
