The Rondje Weerribben criss-crosses the Weerribben-Wieden National Park. There is an international alure to the ecological value of the Weerribben. Cycle the lap and discover the Weerribben incubator for extraordinary flora and fauna.

Starting point

Because of the separate signage, you can effectively start anywhere. Our recommendation for a great departure point is the Weerribben Visitor Centre of the Dutch Forest Management Agency (Hoogeweg 27 in Ossenzijl). Take the route back towards Ossenzijl from the car park and follow the signs from there.

  1. Visitor Centre De Weerribben

    Visitor Centre De Weerribben is the ultimate departure point for trips on a closed-top excursion boat, fluisterboot (‘whisper’ boat - electric boat) or canoe at Weerribben-Wieden National Park. Also perfect for a walk or cycling. There is a tourist information point in the outdoor centre.

  2. Bird hide

    The Weerribben is a large area of low peatland, home to extraordinary birds, butterflies and dragonflies. Try to spot them all from inside the bird hide on the Kooibomenpad.
