You can take a wonderful bike ride around Enkhuizen. Enjoy the panoramic view over the IJsselmeer, explore the historic towns in this area and then cycle through the quiet polders that are so typical of this part of the Netherlands. This route takes you through the center of Enkhuizen and through Bovenkarspel, among other things.

Zuiderzee Museum
VVV Enkhuizen on the outskirts of Enkhuizen is the starting point of this route. From here you cycle through the center of Enkhuizen and along the edge of the IJsselmeer. Along the way you will pass the Zuiderzee Museum. Here you will learn more about the time when the IJsselmeer was still the Zuiderzee. This sea was closed in 1932 with the Afsluitdijk. You will also learn more about what daily life was like in the 1930s. Children can join a scavenger hunt, stilt walk or try one of the other fun activities in the museum.

Bare Feet Pad
A little further on the route you will pass the Barefoot Path near Het Streekbos. Put down your bike and take off your shoes to explore this path on foot. Along the way you will pass a windmill, a bird pond and a herb garden.

Historical sites
Other places of interest on the route are the Ceres mill and De Overhaal. The Ceres mill is a flour mill that was built in 1849 as the successor to a post mill. In 1998 the mill was restored on a large scale. De Overhaal is an industrial monument that was used in the 17th century to transfer barges from the polder to the Zuiderzee. The boat lift was restored in 1993 and has been used for recreational boats and barges ever since.
