We'll meet at the Haarlem train station to start the tour and pick up the rental bikes. We'll then ride through north Haarlem to one of the surrounding villages where we will visit a fully operational windmill. You'll have a chance to explore the entire mill and take pictures from the 3rd story deck. There is also a shop in the mill. We'll continue through rural Holland and into one of the largest national parks in the country where we'll walk through the forest to a WW2 anti-tank wall and bunker compound. After another short bike ride we'll visit a second bunker installation used by elite German commando's. From here, we'll take a leisurely ride back through the beautiful forests and dunes of the national park to a 17th century country estate. This is a great photo opportunity and also has a chance for a drink break. Then it's on to a 13th century castle ruin where we'll enter the ruins and climb to the top of the tower. We'll then bike through another local village toward our last stop back in Haarlem. Here we'll see a quaint little windmill and a great example of a Dutch polder - where water is pumped out of a swamp to form grazing land for cattle.

Hi! I'm Dan, an American expat living in Haarlem for over 16 years. My love of bicycling, hiking, and exploring have helped me discover many local hidden gems just outside of the beautiful old city of Haarlem. I can help you experience the real Holland, behind the scenes and far away from the guidebooks and throngs of tourists. This is an active tour where we'll bike through the Dutch countryside, exploring villages, national parks, working windmills, a 17th century country estate, WW2 German bunkers, and a 13th century castle ruin.
