Description

With this walk you will discover the charm of Den Oever, a beautiful town on the east coast of Wieringen. You also walk a bit across the former Zuiderzee island.

Monumental church
You start the route with a terrace at Restaurant Basalt in the harbor of Den Oever, near the beautiful former lighthouse from 1884. Further on you walk past De Hoop, a beautiful thatched corn mill from 1675. A little later you walk through the polder. It's so nice and quiet here on Wieringen! In Oosterland you walk past the eleventh-century Michael's Church, built in Romanesque style. It is built entirely in tuff. Striking: the spire is bricked!

Afsluitdijk
From 1918 to 1923 Wieringen served as a place of exile for the fled German Crown Prince Wilhelm. The story goes that a farrier from Hippolytushoef taught him to forge. At your leisure you can walk through the polder back to Den Oever. Here you can take a look at the place where the Afsluitdijk comes ashore.
