Uranus is also a giant planet, but an Ice Giant. It is so cold (-200 C) that almost all gases are frozen. Uranus orbits the sun in 84 years. At birth, it collided with another planet and therefore its axis of rotation is tilted 98 degrees. That is why it is 42 years of summer and 42 years of winter on Uranus. Uranus also has a number of thin rings and 27 moons. It looks blue because of the frozen natural gas (CH4) on the surface.


At Uranus you have to make the choice. Sailing along the Kromme Rijn or walking along the right bank (5.7 km) or cycling on the Road to Rhijnauwen or walking to Castle Rhijnauwen (4.2 km) where Neptune is found.
