Description

Your route starts with a cup of coffee at De Brugwachter Food & Drink, at Holiday Park Zijpersluis. From here you immediately cross the Noordhollandsch Kanaal at Burgervlotbrug, via one of the five remaining raft bridges in the Netherlands. Special! On the other side you pass through the Mennonietenbuurt: this former settlement was founded by Mennonites in the eighteenth century. Then you make a tour around the Abtskolk, in the nature reserve Abtskolk and the Putten, a unique open area behind the Hondsbossche seawall. It has been designated a Natura 2000 site because the gray goose, white-fronted goose, greylag goose and wigeon live here. The irregular allotment is clearly visible from the cycling and walking paths. After a well-deserved lunch at your starting point, you can stroll through the beautiful old polder village of Burgerbrug.
