The Defence Line of Amsterdam (De Stelling van Amsterdam)
An active day out at the Defence Line
Various hiking and biking trails through the beautiful Dutch landscape start or end at the Defence Line. They take you to vast Dutch beaches, quiet dunes, green meadows and scenic dikes. There is much to enjoy in the vicinity: picturesque dike towns, colourful markets and traditional Dutch fairs, for instance.
And wherever you are, the Dutch coastline is never far away. Indeed, some parts of the Defence Line are located along the coast and in the dunes.
If you want to explore the surroundings of the Defence Line on two wheels, there are various places where you can rent a bike.
