Groede is an authentic village, which was a Red Cross village during the Second World War. This meant that the village was not bombed. The village has therefore retained its character and still has many houses in Flemish style. You can taste this old atmosphere at the cozy market. Also in the center of Groede is the Museumstraatje (Slijkstraat) with shops and old crafts.
Aalbrechtse windmill (hull/remainder) is the first attraction on the route. This beautiful round stone ground sailer was built around 1848 as a flour mill. The mill was dismantled in 1931 and the roof was later removed in 1934. A year later, the mill was converted into a holiday home and received the striking platform that can still be seen today.
Then you cycle on to the next mill in Retranchement. The Retranchementse Molen is an open post mill built in 1818. It replaces its predecessor that was built in 1648 and blown down in 1817. The mill was mainly used for grinding corn. The mill now runs on a voluntary basis.
