There are new and old bits, and when you cycle from Amsterdam, you need to go through the foot tunnel to reach the nicest part of the dorp (village), where many of the cafés line the central lake. On weekends in the summer, look for the ferry crossing from Holysloot, where, close-by, you can take an entertaining walk amid the cows along the Wittebruggetjesroute ("White Bridges Route") while wheeling your bike.
