Roads of the Netherlands

The Netherlands, often celebrated for its iconic windmills, sprawling tulip fields, and intricate canal networks, holds another captivating allure for those with wanderlust in their veins: its uniquely scenic roads. Embark on a journey along the Afsluitdijk, a marvel of engineering that serenely splits the sea, or navigate the gentle curves of the Veluwezoom's forested paths, painted with nature's most vibrant hues. Cruise through the Beemster Polder, where geometric farmlands echo the artistry of Dutch masters, or venture down the coastal roads of Zeeland, where the North Sea whispers tales of old.

In the Netherlands, every road is a chapter, every turn a verse in the rich tapestry of Dutch history and landscapes. But what the country lacks in towering mountains, it makes up for in unique highlights like the road to Vaalserberg, the highest point in mainland Netherlands. This remarkable road, known as the 'Viergrenzenweg' or 'four-borders road,' takes you to the peak, located in the province of Limburg. The summit not only offers breathtaking views but also marks the tripoint between Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands. At the south-easternmost edge of the country, in the municipality of Vaals, the summit boasts a large parking lot and the 35-meter Wilhelminatoren observation tower, complete with a restaurant.

Strap in, and let the Low Country's lanes, including the heights of Vaalserberg, lead you to sights and sensations you never thought possible.
