Height Profile


This route partly crosses the division between Tytsjerksteradiel and Achtkarspelen; the Mûntsegroppe. Near Harkema, on this sandy road, there is a series of workers' houses built in 1919 on spacious lots. They have the character of a small farm because behind the front house the hood shields extend and form a barn for small livestock or arable products. In the largely reclaimed area, with also pieces of heathland, the houses form an intact whole that makes clear how this area was cultivated at the beginning of the 20th century. 
Further south, near the Betonwei, there are two more of the 22 reclamation farms built by the housing association in 1912. They were the reason for the foundation of the Spitkeet theme park, where living and working on the heath is shown with, among other things, a sod hut.
