About the LF Zuiderzeeroute
We’ll embark on a bike tour around a sea that’s no longer here, but still very much captures the imagination. For many centuries, the Zuiderzee (literally: Southern Sea) was a wild sea that regularly flooded the land. The LF Zuiderzeeroute is 440 kilometres long. For this new route, the LF21, LF22 en LF23 have been transformed and improved.
Follow the signs
The signposting of the LF Zuiderzeeroute is simple and clear: the entire route is marked in both directions with signs that say ‘LF Zuiderzeeroute’. So there’s not much more for us to say than: “follow the signs”. The direction that you’re following is indicated on the bottom edge of the signs: Amsterdam - Kampen - Afsluitdijk Enkhuizen - Amsterdam or Amsterdam - Enkhuizen - Afsluitdijk - Kampen - Amsterdam.
The signs of the LF21, LF22 and LF23 have been removed, so you won’t see them any longer.
Handy guide and app
The signs along the route will show you the way. We’d still recommend that you always bring along an up-to-date map, though. If you miss a sign or want to deviate from the route, it will help you to orientate yourself. The Zuiderzeeroute cycle guide features easy-to-read maps. And it tells you the story of this fascinating river. The LF app includes details of the LF Zuiderzeeroute as well. And also of the ‘Fietsers Welkom!’ establishments and accommodations along the route. The app even tells you the ferry schedules. It can be downloaded for free in the app stores. You can use it to guide you on your ride. Or at night you can read what sights the next day has in store for you.
Do you want to deviate from the route? Using the reference point numbers that connect to the LF Zuiderzeeroute you can ride from a train station to the route, for instance. Or go to your accommodation for the night. Or maybe you want to take a short cut, to visit friends or places of interest that are outside of the route. It’s all possible.
