Cycling route 558904
Provided by: Groots Genieten
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.
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.
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.
Below you will find various suggestions for breaks that you can visit during your route. These are divided into different categories, making it easy for you to choose.
