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!

Farm shop Alexandershof is located in a farm from 1952, with a striking monumental entrance gate from 1786. The fencing and gates are national monuments. The farm shop is located between Numansdorp and Klaaswaalen on a beautiful cycle path. Arable crops are mainly grown here: the tastiest potatoes can be found here. But regional products are also for sale in the farm shop. The gift packages and farm fries are highly recommended. The shop is closed on Sundays, but open until 7 p.m. on all other days. So no problem if you come back late from your cycling or hiking trip and want to stock up on something tasty!

This mill was built in 1856 as the second mill in Numansdorp. The mill was initially powered by wind power, until a mechanical drive took over. In 1953 the cover of the mill was therefore removed; not much later the rest followed.

The most famous windmill type in the Netherlands. Windmills were not only used to produce flour from cereals, but also for draining polder areas. Natural energy. The most famous windmills can be found in Kinderdijk, which have truly been set up as a polder model. A must see!
