  • Cycling route 200105

This route takes you through the Westland. During this tour you will see the impressive greenhouse complexes that give this area the name of Glass City. But also surprising nature reserves and an old polder landscape intersected by watercourses. You will soon be cycling along the unique nature reserve De Zeven Gaten. A little later you drive along the Wollebrand, which is partly in use as a recreational lake, but also serves as a natural water storage. Just before and after Maasland you pass three mills. Worth checking them out! Just outside Hoek van Holland you cycle through the Staelduinse Bos, a forest area of approximately 95 hectares.

Drie Lelies

The most famous windmill type in the Netherlands. Windmills were used not only to produce flour from cereals, but also to reclaim polder areas. Natural energy. The most famous windmills can be found in Kinderdijk, really set up as a polder model. A must see!

Wippersmolen

De Wippersmolen
3141SV Maassluis
http://www.allemolens.nl

This Wippersmolen was built to drain the Sluispolder. After the area around the mill deteriorated due to high-rise buildings, raised traffic viaduct, Wipperspark, high poplars and tall vegetation, it became increasingly difficult to keep the mill running.
