The Westerkwartier is a beautiful region in the west of the province of Groningen. Here you cycle through a beautiful landscape that is littered with sights.

In the Westerkwartier you drive through a mosaic of mounds, ditches, grasslands and winding roads. You can get a breath of fresh air in this vast landscape! And enjoy the many historical sights, such as the famous Groningen churches that you pass in Niekerk, among others. In Zoutkamp you will pass some picturesque wooden houses from the 1990s on the Reitdiepskade.

Around Niehove you drive across the former Wadden island of Humsterland, one of the oldest cultural landscapes in Western Europe. Be sure to take a look at Niehove itself, the entire town enjoys a protected village view. The mound has been inhabited continuously for about 2200 years, wow! Until 1100, sea water had free rein up to Marum. The current land was won after centuries of toil at sea.

Groningen windmills
In addition to characteristic farms, capital villas and the monumental Waterwolf pumping station from 1920 (near junction 86), you will also see several windmills while cycling. At Visvliet you pass the Hilmahuistermolen, a polder mill from 1868 that is close to the border with Friesland. In the village of Noordhorn you will pass Fortuin, a flour mill from 1890.
