Peat extraction in the Weerribben
A large part of this route takes you through the beautiful landscape of the Weerribben. This area was created by peat extraction that took place there for many centuries. Special strips of land were released to allow the peat to dry up. These so-called'ribs\\\' can still be seen in the landscape. After about 15 kilometers you cycle past the polder mill De Reiger and shortly afterwards you cycle past the polder mill De Rietvink.

Restaurant Ant Waeter
This cycling tour ends at Restaurant Ant Waeter. Take a seat on the terrace at the water's edge and enjoy a tasty snack and a drink. Whether you want a cup of coffee with homemade apple pie, a small snack or an extensive meal, it's all possible here. It is also possible to spend the night here in the associated B&B or at the mini-camping. Sleep well and explore hiking route 352492 the next day well rested.
