Along the Stootersplas
The starting point of this route is in the middle of Het Twiske. Here you will find Twiske Haven where you can enjoy a snack and a drink. Start the day here with a cup of coffee by the water before you start your trip or settle down here afterwards for a nice lunch or dinner. From here you walk along the edge of the Stootersplas through the Twiske. The Stootersplas was created in 1960 when a lot of sand was excavated here for the construction of the Coentunnel. In 1972, the excavated area was transformed into a recreational lake. This is how this water was created that is perfect for water sports enthusiasts. The Stootersplas is also the habitat of numerous birds.

Follow the route markers
This route is marked with route markers with red arrows. It is also possible to shorten the route. In winter and in wet weather it is important to put on good footwear, because it can get soggy here.

Legakker and peat holes for the peat
Peat has been extracted over the centuries around Oostzaan, Den Ilp and Landsmeer. After the high moor had run out, the low moor was dredged with so-called pull brackets. The peat was then laid out on narrow strips of land, dried and cut into thick peats. This created a landscape with fields and peat holes, called'dellen\\\' in Oostzaans, which you can see in this area.
