    Ghent

    Ghent (Gent) in Belgium?

    An article on CNN from three weeks ago:
    http://articles.cnn.com/2010-10-13/t...h?_s=PM:TRAVEL

    And Lonely Planet’s top 10 cities for 2011 ranks Gent at nr. 7: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/belgium/...articles/76165

    59 cycle tracks along towpaths of rivers and canals and on former railway tracks in Belgium, and along the border regions of France, the Netherlands, Germany and Luxembourg with Belgium>> http://www.bikely.com/listpaths/by/fietslogies

    The North Sea Cycle Route will take you most of the way. It is fairly well signposted and you can get the maps in booklet form for Germany and a set for Netherlands. Campsites are all marked.
    There are some good ferry routes to the islands. Harlingen to Vlieland, then over to Texel and ferry to Del Helder is a good detour. Vleiland is a car-free island with a nice campsite signposted just inland from the coastal road, a few km S of Vlieland town.
    Texel has a pretty main town and a farmyard campsite close to the main ferry terminal but you have to ask around, it is not well signposted. The other campsites are huge commercial tourist ones.
