Old Brabant villages and plenty of natural beauty. You will experience it all on this beautiful route. Just like two historic redoubts! That's nice cycling!

Old ramps
The original castle was used during the siege of Breda, among other things. Due to its favorable location on the Mark, this redoubt served as a fortification until 1952! At junction 22 is De Kleine Schans, a fortification that also dates from the Eighty Years' War.

Brabant villages
In Wagenberg you drive past the St. Gummarus Church from 1904, you can also see some beautiful old farms here. In Made you pass the Hoop Doet Leven, a flour mill from 1867. Nearby is a former church in the style of the Amsterdam School. In the countryside you can enjoy a varied and peaceful landscape of stream valleys and arable and grasslands.

Soldiers no longer walk there, the contours of the defensive structure can only be seen from the air. But the Spinolaschans in Breda is still there, hidden between the trees. Flora and fauna now predominate on this former battleground. This 'Grote Schans' was an independent defense work with four bastions. It was part of a thirty-mile line. The Spanish general Spinola built it in 1624 so that no food could be found in Breda. With success, because after eleven months the city surrendered. Immediately afterwards, Spinola dismantled the Spinolaschans in Breda. Nevertheless, Frederik Hendrik redesigned the Great Schans in 1637: he besieged Breda and recaptured the city from the Spaniards.

The mill was built in 1867. In the autumn of 1944 the mill was damaged by combat actions. The mill was restored in 1971. The mill is again regularly used on wind power by the volunteer miller.
