  • Hiking route 2456553
This walking route takes you through two special areas in the Hoeksche Waard. First you walk through the medieval Sint Anthoniepolder. From the Polderdijk you can see pollard willows, grasslands and the rippling water of the Binnenbedijkte Maas, a former river arm. The Sint Anthoniepolder is the only polder in the Hoeksche Waard that was not flooded during the infamous Sint-Elizabeth flood of 1421. Partly for this reason, there is still a Romanesque church from 1357 on the dike! You will also see the Antonymolen, a polder mill from 1842. Further on is De Hoop, a corn mill from 1822. From junction 57 you walk through the Oudeland van Strijen. This nature reserve consists of grasslands and fields. It is an oasis of peace and good bird watching. The route ends at Hoeksche Zuivel.

With great passion and pleasure Arie, Heleen and their three children work on this beautiful company. No day is the same. With a lot of love for the cows and the work, the Hoefsche Zuivel is a real family business to be proud of. They bring farm life back to the people with artisanal dairy products. The milk from the cows is the main ingredient here. Delicious farm yoghurt, milk, vanilla custard and buttermilk are made from this. Take a look at the farm and experience the pure farm life for yourself. A nice stopover on the Binnenbedijkte Maas!

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