Description

The Hoekse Waard is already beautiful with all those dikes and polders, but if you also take in the Haringvliet you already have a wonderful day out. Get off in Oud-Beijerland to enjoy the beautiful historic buildings!

National Landscape
From your starting point just above Numansdorp, you set course for the Haringvliet, where you can immediately visit the National Landscape Center. The Hoeksche Waard is one of the national landscapes of the Netherlands. It received this special status because of the openness of the area, the polders and the many creeks and dikes. If you continue cycling along the Haringvliet, you will see the natural island of Tiengemeten on the horizon.

Winding dikes
The village of Zuid-Beijerland looms, just like Nieuw-Beijerland and Oud-Beijerland named after Sabina van Bavaria. She was the wife of Lamoraal van Egmont, who founded Oud-Beijerland in the 16th century. You will see numerous monumental buildings. Over winding dikes you cycle along wide polders and creeks back to Boerderijwinkel Alexandershof. Stock up on something nice for home - how about farmhouse cane, that will go in after such a day!
