  • 61.76 km (Approximately 03:37 u)
  • Cycling route 192730
Via Schagen, where you can visit various museums, you drive to Julianadorp. This village was originally called Loopuyt. In honor of the birth of Princess Juliana in 1909, Loopuyt was renamed Julianadorp. At junction 10 you pass through the former hamlet of De Blauwe Keet, which arose here from 1824 after the excavation work for the Noordhollandsch Kanaal. If you cycle along the coast you can see the Groote Kaap from a distance, a steel lighthouse of almost seventeen meters high. In Callantsoog you pass De Zwaan, a seesaw mill from 1993 that raises the water level in the area. On the church square is the Reformed Church from 1580, a national monument with the beautiful tower from 1671.

http://www.automuseumschagen.nl

At Automuseum Schagen, with Arie Kapitein as a roundabout, various car brands from Europe and America are on display. The traditional Dutch Dafjes have been given their own place. The collection is regularly supplemented with special cars from owners from the region who temporarily make their cars available to the museum. People used to be proud of their precious possessions and the family ride in the car on Sunday afternoon was an experience. Take a journey through the time of automotive history while enjoying a fresh cup of coffee. The entrance is completely free!

This museum is located in the eastern castle tower of Schagen. It is the first and only museum in the Netherlands that focuses on the First World War, which included the Battle of the Somme in 1916. In addition to archaeological finds from the Somme area, the collection consists of utensils, weapons, uniform pieces and models. The museum is now a place where people talk and think about human behavior in war and peace, the history of Europe, the present and the future. The museum collaborates with the Regional Museum 40-45, which is housed in the west tower.

Korenmolen De Hoop was built in Leiden in 1631 as a fulling mill for the textile industry and ended as a sawmill. In 1865 the mill was moved to Zand and built as a corn mill. In addition to the mill, there is also a motorboat, in which a Ruston engine from 1932 can also drive the millstones. Besides a cup of coffee with cake or some soda, you can also go here for flour products. On the site you will find 14 camper pitches, with a beautiful view of the mill and surrounding flower fields. For opening times see www.molentzand.nl.
