Tour of Schouwen-Duivenland
35.84 km (Approximately 02:06 u)
This cycling route takes you along city walls, gates and historical monuments in and around Zierikzee and lets you breathe in the atmosphere of the island of Schouwen-Duiveland. Zierikzee is a city with a rich history and is known as a city of monuments. For a relatively small city, Zierikzee has a large number of monuments. The most famous monument is the St. Lievens Monstertoren, which is popularly known as the Dikke Toren. In Zierikzee we visit windmill Den Haas. This scaffolding mill dates from 1727. In 1966 the mill was sold to the municipality and in 1987 the mill was put into use again. The mill has three pairs of millstones. From Zierikzee you cycle via Ouwerkerk in the direction of Nieuwerkerk. Nieuwerkerk is a church village, which originated in the 12th century, and is part of the Zeeland municipality of Schouwen-Duiveland. The Protestant church has a striking hexagonal tower, somewhat comparable to the octagonal tower of Kruiningen. You cycle the last part of this route via Oosterland (as a mill of the same name that we visit) and Ouwekerk back to Zierikzee.

Welcome to De Vier Bannen Campsite. A campsite in the middle of the beautiful creek area, directly on the Oosterschelde National Park, surrounded by salt marshes and mud flats and all the unique and exuberant flora and fauna that go with it. Camping De Vier Bannen is so special. The campsite consciously opts for simple facilities, but of high quality. The sanitary building is heated to offer comfort in the spring and autumn. Wifi is powerful and wireless, the animal meadow, the nature trail (where you can get to know trees and nest boxes of various birds) and the recreation team focus on experiencing nature. Because the Vier Bannen is located in a beautiful area, it is a great base from which to discover the Zeeland landscape.
Den Haas 1
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!
