From the Anna Paulowna polder you can drive straight onto the former island of Wieringen. Here you can enjoy the special cultural history, the views and the tranquility.
The route starts near Anna Paulowna. This village is named after Queen Anna Paulowna, a member of the Romanov family who was married to King Willem II. The largest contiguous bulb area in the world is located around the village. In the season you have a beautiful view of the colorful fields from the saddle. You also make a tour along the Amstelmeer. This water once formed the transition between the Zuiderzee and the Waddenzee.
VOC ships returning from the East used the western side of Wieringen as a quarantine area for sick sailors. In Hippolytushoef you can see, among other things, the Hippolytuskerk. It is partly built of tuff, like the twelfth-century base of the church tower. On the way back you make a small climb at Westerland. In good weather you have a beautiful panorama of the area from the lateral moraine!
Do you want to do two fun activities? You can fish for shrimps in Den Oever on the Oostkade and you can walk on the mudflats in Hippolytushoef.
