Today you will cycle through the Frisian region of Gaasterland, a very different kind of area than you would expect to find in the Frisian province: instead of a flat polder and meadow landscape, this nature reserve has richly sloping forests. The relief formed a natural protective wall against the water of the Zuiderzee, and now still against the water of the IJsselmeer. You will find beautiful windmills here, such as Doris Mooltsje: the oldest spinning head mill in Friesland. You can see the mill from afar and is in a romantic location next to the water. The mill was probably built in the eighteenth century. The Nylânnermolen in Workum was probably built in 1784 as a polder mill.

The restored 'Doris-Mooltsje' is a showpiece in the landscape. The mill is the oldest spider mill in Friesland and very popular because of its beautiful location.

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!
