Vraiment sympa
Amsterdam est vraiment une ville superbe, où il est facile de faire du vélo. On passe en l'espace de trois coups de pédale de la ville à la campagne, sans passer par des zones industrielles moches et ennuyeuse. Nous avons fait 4 jours à vélo, et découvrir chaque jour un nouveau volet de la carte postale des Pays-Bas : 1er jour, les digues et la mer intérieure ; 2e jour, le Waterland, ses polders et ses moulins ; 3e jour, la Mer du Nord ; 4e jour le pays des tulipes ! Génial ces changements de paysages en si peu de temps ! Pas un jour qui ressemble à l'autre, et que c'est beau de pouvoir ainsi disposer de pistes cyclables traversant des zones si sauvages !

Städtereide mit dem Fahrrad
Die Streckenführung war sehr schön. Die Hotels haben uns auch gefallen. Wir hatten zusätzlich Halbpension gebucht. Die Menuauswahl in allen Unterkünften war sehr gut und das Essen superlecker. Die Fahrräder waren neuwertig und von guter Qualität.

Pacours à vélo
Les itinéraires ne sont pas toujours faciles à suivre. Les panneaux nous indiquant le chemin sont par endroit cachés par des branches ou des arbres et les bornes sont enfouies dans l'herbe. Peut-être en voyant de si beaux paysages, nous en oublions de chercher notre route...Dans l'ensemble, c'était une expérience que nous ne regrettons pas et avons eu beaucoup de plaisir à parcourir ce pays en vélo. Une semaine avec un temps ensoleillé, quoi de mieux pour profiter d'un bon bol d'air.Cela en vaut vraiment la peine. N'hésitez pas, allez-y!

Abwechslungsreiche Radtour
Attraktive Rundreise in Südholland. In Holland muss man fast mit dem Velo unterwegs sein. Das Fahrrad ist das geeignete Verkehrsmittel. Der Veloverkehr ist allerdings gelegentlich sehr dicht, also Vorsicht vor den Velofahrenden. Die gebuchten Unterkünfte waren gut. Die Reiseunterlagen eher ungenügend. Die Texte manchmal unklar, die Karten ungenau. Dies hat ab und zu einen Umweg geführt.

Gut
Hotels meist gut, witzig- innovatives Hotel in Zaandam; Etappen eher kurz, Gepäcktransport hat immer geklappt, Velos robust und zuverlässig,
