At junction 40 you cross the Noordhollandsch Kanaal via one of the five remaining raft bridges in the Netherlands. You cycle a few kilometers along the Pettemerduinen. At the end is Petten, a village that was rebuilt for the fourth (!) Time after the Second World War. The first two devastations (in 1421 and 1625) were caused by the sea. The third by the Germans: Petten had to make way for the Atlantic Wall in 1943.

You will find De Brugwachter Food & Drink at Holiday Park Zijpersluis in Burgerbrug, a great base for a day of cycling or walking along the North Holland coast. From here you can walk into the nature reserve Abtskolk and De Putten. Great to combine with a nice long beach walk. Burgerbrug is located halfway between Schagen and the Schoorl dunes, so you can also fully enjoy this by bike. After a beautiful day in the open air, sit down for one of the stews. Or go for the Brugwachter schnitzel with fried onion, mushrooms and mashed potatoes!

A wonderful base for a few days of strolling through the dunes (Petten is 3 km away).

Sights

Molen De Groenvelder

Molen De Groenvelder is a polder mill from 1571 with an oak back. The mill drained the Valkkoog polder, a drainage area of approximately 497 hectares. Within this polder was the Westerendspolder, which had its own drainage system. In the first half of the 20th century, a wind motor was used to drain the southern part of the polder, but this wind motor disappeared as a result of land consolidation. Today, the mill is still regularly used for the drainage of the polder, together with an electric screw pump.
