Into the dunes
The starting point of this route is right in the center of Schiermonnikoog at the tourist office.

Then you cycle along the Westerplas back to the center of Schiermonnikoog. Do you like bird watching? Then make use of the bird hide at the Westerplas and search the water for special bird species without disturbing them in their activities.

Resting on the dike
On the last part of the route, take a seat on the Bank van Banck and rest for a while. This sofa was built on the favorite spot on the dike of mr. JE Banck. He was the owner of the island between 1859 and 1878 and he had this dike built to protect the village against the raging sea.
