Get a breath of fresh air along the Markermeer, enjoy the polder landscape near Hoorn... the Netherlands is so beautiful. A wonderful day out by bike!

Markermeer
You will soon be cycling along the Markermeer. It was once part of the wild Zuiderzee, but now the water has been tamed. You can get a breath of fresh air and enjoy the views over the water. Further on you drive through a typical open polder landscape with canals, ditches and high skies. On the horizon you can regularly see a church standing up perky.

Just outside Hoorn you pass De Krijgsman, a mill with a remarkable history. In 1602 a mill was built here, which blown over in 1860. His replacement, De Krijgsman, who was completed in 1862, burned down in 1896 by lightning. The current mill is a peeling mill from 1751 that was rebuilt on this site and was given the same name. He's been there for a while, let's hope the tide has turned for De Krijgsman!
