Go cycling through the interior of the Zeeland province. In the middle of a marine clay landscape, in a patchwork of polders with an agricultural overtone, you will find the town of Oostburg. Around this are creek areas full of orchids and grasslands that traditionally belong to the noble House of Hemptinne. Oostburg is a modern town and historic buildings can be counted on one hand, but that makes the remaining mansions extra special. Nice sights mainly date from the mid-twentieth century: the Protestant Church and the 55 meter high water tower were built in 1950, the Eligius Church dates from 1949 and the Town Hall was opened in 1957. The windmills you encounter along the way are older. Take, for example, the Luteyn mill (hull/remainder), which determines the atmosphere of the village of Nieuwvliet. Although the mill has been dismantled, the mill hull still stands stately on the Mettenijedijk as a national monument. De Luteyn was once a tower mill in full regalia. The former corn mill was built in 1859, but was dismantled in 1923. The first is a stone's throw from the restaurant in Zuidzande. The round stone belt mill was built in 1874 and functioned as a flour mill. The mill is fully capable of grinding and nowadays runs on a voluntary basis and can only be viewed by appointment. Molen De Meermin (hull/remainder) looks very different and hardly recognizable as such. The mill from 1896 was once also used as a flour mill, but was dismantled in 1948, because it was destroyed by war violence in 1944. The stone hull is heavily overgrown with ivy, and instead of the mill cap and the blades there is a weather vane on it . And finally windmill De Brak presents itself. The round stone tower mill from 1739 is a beautiful sight and can also be visited from the inside between Easter and October. The mill, which stands on a mill belt and therefore appears even higher, is the first stone mill in Sluis. The plaque above the door refers to the fact that the mill is named after an old breed of dog.
