Description

This route takes you along a number of Dutch lakes: the Brassemermeer, the Westeinderplassen and the Kagerplassen. In addition to water-rich views, you will also find many historic villages in this region.

Brassemermeer
From the cycle path you can see old farms and some beautiful windmills. You cross the Paddegat with a ferry, after which you see some of the six islands of De Hemmen in the Brassemermeer. They were created after a dike breach in 1788. In Rijnsaterwoude you pass the Dekkermolen from 1911.

Westeinderplassen
You make a tour around the Westeinderplassen. This area was created by peat extraction, but never reclaimed. A nice place to get off and enjoy the silence along the bank. Fort at Kudelstaart, part of the Defense Line of Amsterdam, is also located on the water. You drive over the Huigsloterdijk to the village of Kaag. You can cross the Kagerplassen via a ferry: how nice!
