Tiel is a city in the Dutch province Gelderland. It has a great central position in the area, with connections to major cities such as Nijmegen, Arnhem and ’s-Hertogenbosch. However, if you are looking for a quiet getaway then Tiel is also a great place to stay since it is located in the Betuwe. The Betuwe is a nature area situated between rivers the Waal, the Rhine and Lek. The area is famous for its fruit production. Tiel is not only the largest city in this region but also the most important city. Many cycling routes travel from Tiel through the Betuwe region and make it easy for you to discover what the Betuwe is all about. Furthermore, walking routes are very common as well. There are city walks but also historic walks and blossom routes. That last one is highly recommended in spring time when the trees blossom. The Betuwe and especially Tiel are known for its fruit production which results in a picturesque sight.

Every year in September a festival called Appelpop is held in Tiel. This used to be a ‘fruitcorso’; a festival where the origins of the Betuwe were celebrated. These days, Appelpop is just a modern music festival.
