Description

Beautiful views over water alternate with the interior of Schouwen-Duiveland. With a bit of luck you will see a bat, and you will probably encounter one or more shetland ponies. A must-see for animal lovers, but those interested in cultural history will also be amazed at the cultural-historical value of Schouwen-Duiveland, which is definitely worth a visit with various windmills and a beautiful estate. From the car park, it's just a one and a half kilometer bike ride to the Burgh-Haamstede Tourist Office, where you can pick up more background information about the region before continuing the route south. After two kilometers you arrive in a wooded area at the beautiful Slot Haamstede. This beautiful estate dates from the 13th century, when there was already a residential tower. The rich forest surrounding the tower and the estate provided the residents with wood for various purposes. Over the centuries, the castle has been rebuilt and rebuilt and after the Second World War they stopped cutting the forests. The woods and the estate are not open to the public, but the castle wall is. This is host to a number of unusual plants, including wall snapdragon and wall fern. About a kilometer further on you will find grain mill'Graanhalm\\\'. This flour mill is the most common type of mill. The Graanhalm was built in 1847 and is still capable of grinding. The grain that this mill grinds is mainly supplied to the adjacent pancake house, which makes delicious pancakes. The route now leads for a large part along the water. When you decide to take a break at the rustic restaurant'De Schelphoek\\\', you can enjoy beautiful views. In the more than 45 years that the restaurant has existed, it lives up to its motto'Hospitality and Good Quality\\\'. With the bicycle discount pass you enjoy a nice advantage here. After about 22 kilometers you come to another mill:'De Zwaan\\\'. Although the flour mill is the most common, the type of mill under which'De Zwaan\\\' falls is the most well-known. This is a typical Dutch windmill! The tour continues in a northerly direction and heads inland. Here you will encounter two more mills:'t Hert and De Lelie. These two mills are also both windmills. By now you have almost crossed the peninsula, so perhaps a break to enjoy a snack or drink is in order. The bicycle discount pass gives you nice discounts at the charming bungalow parks'Zeeland Village\\\' and'De Soeten Haert\\\', while you enjoy the rustic environment. At junction 76, follow the route south through the town of Renesse. Slot Moermond with its thick walls and wide moat and the beautiful estate Pension't Huys Grol are definitely worth a visit.
