From Farm Camping Doornenbal you can make a beautiful route along the Utrechtse Vecht. Rippling water, wide fields and reed beds: it's wonderfully quiet cycling here! Especially since you mainly drive on low-traffic paths. You will not lack history either. On the Vecht there are a number of gems of villages, such as Loenen aan de Vecht, Vreeland and Nigtevecht. You can admire plenty of old houses, churches, country estates and tea domes here. Just like in Weesp: with no less than 200 national monuments, it is not surprising that this fortified town enjoys a protected cityscape. Here you can see, among other things, the Fort on the Ossemarkt. The windmills are also present in the typical Dutch landscape. Just after Nigtevecht you will see the Garstenmolen from 1876 and the Hoekermolen from 1874. What an experience!

The most famous windmill type in the Netherlands. Windmills were not only used to produce flour from cereals, but also for draining polder areas. Natural energy. The most famous windmills can be found in Kinderdijk, really set up as a polder model. A must see!
