With this route over Wieringen you can enjoy views over the IJsselmeer and the North Holland polder. You will also pass through characteristic villages and the quiet Robbenoordbos.

The Shore
You start the route on Wieringen, a former island in the Zuiderzee that was linked to North Holland in 1924. You drive through characteristic beautiful villages such as Westerland and Hippolytushoef. Den Oever is the place where the Afsluitdijk comes ashore in North Holland. You will find some old locks and casemates here. The former lighthouse from 1884 is also located here.

Further on you drive through the Robbenoordbos. A little later you have a beautiful view of the IJsselmeer from the dike. You pass the Dijkgatbos on your right. In the vast polders you pass Wieringerwaard, a village that once lay on the Zuiderzee. Here you see the White Church from 1865. A little further on you pass the Polderhuis, which was built in 1612 as the first in the village. The route ends at Camping Waddenzee.

The Robbenoordbos was planted in the 1930s in an area that turned out to be unsuitable for agriculture. Few of these trees survive. At the end of the Second World War, the Germans blew up two dikes to flood the Wieringermeerpolder. They wanted to prevent Allied airborne landings in this area. The forest also flooded and largely died. New trees were planted in the fifties, such as oak, alder and beech. In recent years, the Robbenoordbos has slowly grown into the Dijkgatbos, slightly further south, so that a unique new nature reserve has now been created.
