This route takes you along the IJselmeer coast and the wooded Gaasterland in National Landscape Southwest Fryslân, one of twenty national landscapes in the Netherlands.

De Vlijt
The first point of interest on your route is windmill De Vlijt. This beautiful spiders head windmill was built in 1986 and therefore very young by mill terms. The size proportions have deviated due to a renovation: the mill has a larger, wider lower tower than usual and the size ratio between shaft and rods has also changed significantly. Further along the IJsselmeer coast and the idyllic Gaasterland you will also encounter beautiful flowers and plants. Finger clam flower, wood anemone, neck collar anemone and wild garlic, for example.

Ice skating museum
In Hindelopen you pass the Eerste Friese Schaatsmuseum, where you can reminisce about the Elfstedentocht. Then you drive to the cast iron lighthouse at the IJsselmeer: the Lighthouse of Stavoren. The tower has a height of 15.7 meters and was used to help ships reach the port of Stavoren. The building was restored in 2001, the tower was blasted and painted again. In Mirns you will find a beautiful bell chair.
