Het Bildt is one of the oldest polders in our country. The name comes from opbild, which means silted. The local residents are happy to tell you that you are not in, but at Het Bildt!

middle sea
Your route starts with a cup of coffee at Hotel Logement de Witte Klok, in the picturesque village of Oudebildtzijl. Located in the heart of the village, the lodging house has been offering travelers accommodation since 1664! Your walk today takes you through the polder of Het Bildt. This area was once part of the Middelzee. Due to the construction of dikes, the estuary of this sea was increasingly drained from the beginning of the sixteenth century.

noarderleech
You walk through the Noarderleech, which is part of the Noard-Fryslân Bûtendyks nature reserve. It is one of the largest salt marsh areas in Europe and consists of summer polders, saline grasslands and mud flats. You will see many birds passing through, such as geese, black horsemen and curlews. The often salty plants give the landscape a special appearance. From the dikes you can clearly see that the land used to be symmetrically parceled out. Look back in Oudebildtzijl at the old church.
