Extensive reed beds and flowery hay fields. Together with the Weerribben, the De Wieden polder area is one of the most important wetlands in Europe. Giethoorn with the nickname'Hollands Venice\\\' ensures you of a nice outing. It is known for its picturesque appearance: cute bridges span waterways with punts floating in them. Blokzijl has always been a bustling town due to its favorable location. Turf from the area ensured a flourishing trade, but the waters also worked in Blokzijl's favor. Park the car at Recreation Center De Kluft where the day starts with a relaxed atmosphere. Located at a campsite, you may be ignited with a good holiday feeling.

This mill is built in and grown on all sides and is therefore hardly noticeable. The mill is part of a museum.
