Description

History, nature and artificial landscapes. They alternate during this beautiful bike ride along the Veerse lake. During the crossing with the ferry you will see islands on both sides. These are all artificial islands created by sand reclamation in 1961. The largest island is on your left, the Soelekerkeplaat. You get off in Veere, a historic city on Walcheren that is worth exploring. By storing Scottish wool, the town grew into a rich fortress. As a result of this trade, a large colony of Scots settled in the harbor town. Around 1600, 10% of the inhabitants were Scottish. Then you make a nice tour around the Veerse lake. In Vrouwenpolder you pass Beachclub Lekker, voted the best beach pavilion in the Netherlands.
