Your Experience

The 2024 Amstel Gold Race takes place on Sunday 14 April 2024. The Amstel Gold Race has been taking place in the southernmost province of the Netherlands Limburg every year since 1966. Every year ‘De Markt’ in Maastricht is the start venue of the Amstel Gold Race with the finish in nearby Berg en Terblijt (Valkenburg). The Amstel Gold Race is part of the UCI World Tour and it is the only Dutch World Tour Classic. The race attracts a large number of Dutch and International cycling fans each year because of its interesting list of participants.

The southern Dutch province is a truly beautiful area with characteristics that are not usually associated with Holland like a hilly landscape, a great restaurant and café culture and great food and drink. The local delicacy of ‘Vlaai’ is a pie filled with cherries, strawberries or plumbs that’s popular throughout the Netherlands. You just have to try some when you’re there and it is an excellent option for a coffee stop.
