Description

A ride through the Frisian landscape with its many mills and windmills and with the characteristic double mention on the place name signs: once in Dutch and once in Frisian. You will find that on this route. 

Mill de Korenaar
The tour starts at Tulip Inn Franeker. Start the day with a nice cup of coffee or relax after your ride with a drink or a meal. Do you want to see more of this area? Then curl up here and get back on your bike the next day with route 137867. A point of interest on this route is Molen de Korenaar in Sexbierum. This mill was built in 1868. The corn mill once also functioned as a hulling mill. Grain is still regularly ground on a voluntary basis with two pairs of grinding stones. 

Picturesque Franker
You cycle through the open fields to the Waddendijk and you continue your way along the sea. Nothing beats the wind in your hair and the salty air of the Wadden Sea at the Wadden Sea. Part of Franeker, one of the Frisian eleven cities, has a protected cityscape. You can admire dozens of national monuments in the picturesque town. Take, for example, Cammingahuis Castle or Sjaerdemahuis. Part of the east side of this monumental building dates from 1400. Another part dates from the early 16th century and the west side from the 15th century. Until 1969 the building was used as an inn. Now it houses two museums and a bank. 

The Botnia House
The Botniahuis, or Klein Botnia, was built before 1530. In 1853 the house was used as an orphanage. Above the entrance you can see inscription stones, the top of which is flanked by statues of orphans.
