A walk with a lot of Lekdijk and therefore many views. Start at the Everstein recreational lake. The lake is reminiscent of the castle of the same name, which was completely destroyed at the beginning of the 15th century and of which no trace can be found other than in the books. Then you arrive at the dike at the Hagestein weir. The rather modern-looking complex (a cyclist thought it was new!) Dates from 1958. The dam complex of the Lek consists of three pieces (Amerongen, Driel and Hagestein) and serves to keep the Lek at a reasonable height in the event of deviating water tides. The dams (half arches) should preferably be opened, so that the ships can pass through unhindered, others must be locked in the adjacent lock complex. The fish ladder that you look at is interesting. In 10 cm steps you can, if you are patient, watch the animals jump up. Approach the point where the large Lek canal flows from Vreeswijk into the Lek. This is done through the Beatrix locks. It is a spin-off from the Amsterdam Rhine Canal, to have a cut-off to the Lek between Rotterdam and Amsterdam. Just before Vianen, pass the southern Merwedekanaal. It used to be called Zederikkanaal and was originally a migration between Vianen and Gorinchem. It is a typical 19th century width, too narrow, yet wide enough for pleasure and small inland shipping. (Fortunately) a larger channel never came, it has remained rural. Once across the Merwedekanaal, you are in Vianen, the city of the Brederodes. Like all towns along the Lek, Vianen also became important after 1122, certainly because the Vaartse Rijn was dug to continue connecting Utrecht with its hinterland. The broederodes died out and Vianen became German (Lippes) and with that it was another free state on the Lek that became Dutch in 1795. That makes it look a lot like Culemborg, but Vianen was a bit smaller on that occasion. Now it is located at traffic junctions and it is a commuter city, but Culemborg is larger. People tend to sail to Vreeswijk, which lies at the junction of the Oude IJssel but also the Vaartse (Keulse) Rijn. The Oude Sluizen are still there, but Vreeswijk has little old left. It is now called Nieuwegein Zuid and has become a suburb of Utrecht. Because Vreeswijk is located at a water node, a skippers' school was founded here at the time. The skipper couples who were away from home could spend their offspring here for a good education. From Vreeswijk, walk under the bridges over the Lek. The old arch bridge of 1936 and is unemployed. The question now is whether it should be demolished or whether it is allowed to stay, because that arc is very characteristic of the landscape. The highest colleges are now involved. From the old IJsseldam near Klaphek it becomes quiet walking, pass Klein Scheveningen (too big of course) and then walk through beautiful floodplains (some barbed wire) along Jaarsveld and sail to Ameide, the first church village of the Alblasserwaard. Still nice that more and more ferries connect the north and south banks of the Lek. Often only in the summer, but still nice that many volunteers are committed.
