Don't forget to also discover the area south of Wageningen. The Betuwe is known for its rivers and horticulture. During the high season, a visit to an apple, pear or cherry orchard is an absolute must. You can get to the Betuwe by car over the A50.

Want to get to the Betuwe in a unique way? Then cross the water using the Lexkesveer: the ferry connection between Wageningen and Randwijk crossing the Lower Rhine. The ferry operates several times per day and takes pedestrians, cyclists and motorists across.
