    Cycling routes along Roman border (Limes)

    by ATLC Updated Apr 4, 2011

    About the Limes (Roman border). Part of it in Germany has become a Unesco World heritage site. But in The Netherlands there is little to see. Utrecht visualised the location of the castellum Traiectum in November 2007 by a broad band of coloured light, near the Dom tower in the middle of the city. I could not find any information about actual excavations though.

    Here's an interesting map:
    Geocement.esrinl.com
    And another: Livius.org

    There's a cycling route (in two parts, 45 and 50 kms) following the Limes route near Utrecht.
    You can buy the route at the Utrecht Tourist Office (VVV) at the foot of the Dom tower. Which will include links to downloadable vouchers for discounts at various restaurants along the way.

    For more information (in Dutch): click here

    The 50 km route starts at Utrecht Central station where you can hire bicycles.

    The Utrecht Tourist Office (VVV) is open: Mo 12.00-18.00, Tu, We, Fr 10.00-18.00, Th 10.00-20.00, Sa 10.00-17.00, Su 12.00-17.00.

  • Guided walking tour through historic Utrecht

    by inge_k Written Apr 9, 2010

    From a Roman fortress to the centre of the modern Netherlands; the guided walking tours of Utrecht City Tours talk about it all.

    They are very flexible. In the summer of 2010 they offer a tour almost every day, but before that time you can request your own tour if you are with a group. There are three kinds of tours, a short, a regular and a long one. The longest even includes lunch and a backpack to take home!

    Very friendly people, very informative tour.
