Description

Beautiful colorful fields stretch between Hoogkarspel, Wervershoof and Medemblik. Here you will find green meadows, bulb fields that bloom beautifully in spring, summer and late summer and glass greenhouses. Enjoy the views over the vast landscape here.

The most beautiful windmill in North Holland

From here you cycle along the flower bulb fields to windmill De Hoop in Wervershoof. This mill was placed here in 1889 as a replacement for an older mill. In 2010, the mill was named the most beautiful windmill in North Holland by the Noordhollands Dagblad.

Radboud Castle
A little further on the route you will pass Radboud Castle on the edge of Medemblik. This castle was built at the end of the thirteenth century by order of Count Floris V of Holland who had a series of castles built to keep the West Frisians in check.

Mill The Warrior
In the town of Oosterblok you can take a look at De Krijgsman. Two other mills have already stood on this site, but the current mill was built there in 1896. The earlier mills were destroyed by a storm and by lightning. The current mill is still well maintained today and is still used for grinding for specialty shops and the food industry.
