The Via Romana - Experience Roman History

Niederrhein Tourismus GmbH

Six days, round trip by bicycle on the trail of the Romans

On your exciting journey through time by bicycle, not only will you come across the traces of Roman history, which are well worth seeing, but also the unique beauty of the region along the Rhine and Waal rivers. From your peacefully located guesthouse in Kranenburg, you embark on two daily tours to the Netherlands. One leads to Cuijk. On another tour, you explore the charming oldest city in the Netherlands, Nijmegen.
