Description

Your route starts with a cup of coffee at De Brugwachter Food & Beverage, at Vakantiepark Zijpersluis. The route leads past Molen de Groenvelder, a beautiful thatched polder mill from 1572. In Haringhuizen you drive past the fifteenth-century village church. You also pass the Mennonietenbuurt: this former settlement was founded by Mennonites in the eighteenth century. 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.
