Description

Northwest Brabant is ideal for exploring by bicycle. You will find a wide polder landscape, rustic villages and old fortresses. A gem on your route is historic Willemstad.

Picturesque Willemstad
You will soon pass two former fortresses from the Stelling van het Volkerak and the Hollandsch Diep: Fort Sabina Henrica and Fort de Hel. Both forts were built by the French in 1811. In between, you cycle along the De Sint Antoniegorzen nature reserve, a remnant of a tidal bunting. You look out over grasslands where many meadow birds live. Further on you pass through Willemstad: a beautiful fortified town where you can easily experience the history.

Atmospheric Steenbergen
It is wonderfully quiet cycling in the sea clay polders of Northwest Brabant. You can get a breath of fresh air here and enjoy the beautiful views, such as over the Tonnekreek. At Stampersgat you cross the Dintel one more time, a beautiful place. Steenbergen is a former fortified town. You can enjoy the cozy and rustic atmosphere here, just like in Dinteloord.
