The country has more bicycles than residents... Can you believe that there are more than 40.000 km of cycling routes? Special cycling maps are available from local touristic offices.
You can rent them almost anywhere, a proverb says that "a Dutch without a bike is like a fish without water". Heerlen is a typical cycling town.
Favorite thing: It is the central square of the town, which is near the borders with Germany. Maastricht is the capital of the province of Limburg, which is known for its beautiful landscape: castles, green hills, great hiking facilities...
Favorite thing: Except being the ultimate cycling country, Holland is, somehow, the capital of flowers. Floriade, the most beautiful garden in the world, is held every ten years (the last one was in 2002). At the picture, you see a usual icon from the flower market in the town.
