  • Cycling route 114656
Along the way you will pass through villages and windmills and lakes, marinas and museums. First you drive along the Flat Bokken and the Oudegaaster Bokken. The name'break\\\' means as much as'land broken by the water\\\'. These waters are often created by erosion, washing away or peat. Beautiful windmills such as Doris Mooltsje, a spider head from 1790, are located along the breaches. You will pass through Gaastmeer where you will see the Peter Sijperda Marina. While you cycle along the vast meadows, you enjoy the refreshing silence. Just before Workum you pass the Nylânnermolen: a polder mill from 1784. In the town itself you drive through the center that enjoys a protected village view. You will see beautiful buildings such as the former town hall, the weighing house and the Sint-Gertrudiskerk.

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, which have truly been set up as a polder model. A must see!
