Description

This cycling route takes you from Strand49.nl Camping and Glamping to the Schoorlse Duinen. You will pass Petten, which was rebuilt for the fourth time after the Second World War. The village was destroyed for the first time in 1421, during the infamous St. Elisabeth flood. Further on you cycle through Mennonietenbuurt, a settlement founded by Mennonites in the eighteenth century. In Burgervlotbrug you can see one of the five remaining raft bridges in the Netherlands. The Schoorlse Duinen are one of the most beautiful dune areas in Europe. You can enjoy fragrant coniferous forests and rolling heather fields. In June and July, the many thousands of pine orchids form a white carpet. A photogenic area. From Schoorldam you drive over the world famous West Frisian Omringdijk.
