Wieringen was not linked to Noord-Holland until 1924. The former island consists of two moraines. You have beautiful views over the Wadden Sea, the IJsselmeer and the Dutch polder. Just outside Hippolytushoef you pass Molen De Onderneming, a thatched corn and hulling mill from 1851. It smells wonderfully salty here. In good weather you can see the Kop van Noord-Holland and Texel. Den Oever is the place where the Afsluitdijk comes ashore in North Holland. At Restaurant Basalt you can enjoy a coffee, lunch or dinner with a view of the fishing port. The Robbenoordbos was planted in the 1930s in an area that turned out to be unsuitable for agriculture.

Restaurant Basalt is located on the harbor of Den Oever. A special part of the Netherlands, because Den Oever is located on the former island of Wieringen. From Basalt you can cycle beautifully over the Wieringse moraine and the surrounding wetland polder landscape. From the cozy terrace at Basalt you can enjoy your coffee or meal, while looking out over the fishing port. Who knows, maybe one of the fishermen has just delivered the fish that will be on your plate. Restaurant Basalt has ample parking.

The mill was built in 1851 as a grist and hulling mill. It is a wooden octagonal top porter with a stone substructure. In 1930 the mill fell out of operation because mills with diesels or electric motors had taken over the function of the mill. During the Second World War, the mill was put back into use to grind grain on a small scale. This lasted until 1950 after which the mill came to a standstill again and fell into disrepair. In 1952 the mill was purchased by the Oud-Wieringen foundation, which partially restored the mill in 1964. After 1964 the mill was maintained, but only turned every now and then. Both grinding seats were missing, so the mill could not grind. A second major restoration was carried out in the period 1997-2000, after the mill came into the ownership of the De Wieringer Molens association in 1991. Since 2000, volunteer millers have been running the mill regularly on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, when the mill is open for visitors. In 2021 a new mill fine will be placed next to the mill.

The most famous windmill type in the Netherlands. Windmills were used not only to produce flour from cereals, but also to reclaim polder areas. Natural energy. The most famous windmills can be found in Kinderdijk, really set up as a polder model. A must see!
