In Cycling, Netherlands

Rotterdam Heijplaat was for a long time an important shipyard location. It was the base of the RDM, the Rotterdamse Droogdok Maatschappii. The village Heijplaat was built by the first director of RDM at the beginning of the last century. Cycling to Rotterdam Heijplaat is nice on a Sunday, but even more interesting on a week day. Then it is busier and you will see the real life.

Cycling to Rotterdam Heijplaat from Wassenaar is an interesting route, combining nice countryside with the busy port of Rotterdam. On the way to Heijplaat we pass the Benelux tunnel under the river (the Nieuwewaterweg). On the way back we took the waterbus from Heijplaat to Rotterdam and cycled via Delft.

Regularly, events or exhibitions are organised in the RDM facilities. The is a Dutch guide online here.
