Your cycling route starts at Farm Meijendel Pancakes and more. The Meijendel dune area of the same name is one of the top ten of the most bird-rich nature reserves in the Netherlands and nowhere else are there so many nightingales. You cycle along the coast to Katwijk. There used to be a grate on which a fire was lit on the flat roof of the Lighthouse of Katwijk. The lighthouse had another special function: Katwijk children were told that the children came from the Vierboet. Korenmolen De Put was built in 1987 as a replica of the original mill from 1619. You continue cycling through the Raaphorstpolder to castle Oud-Wassenaar. This nineteenth-century villa with stepped gable, side wings and towers was built in 1876-1879. The stately castle is located in a large park and is used as a wedding location.
