On Schouwen-Duiveland you can enjoy Zeeland views and cultural history. You cycle through vast polders and along the banks of the Grevelingenmeer and the Oosterschelde. Ideal for a breath of fresh air.

The route starts at the Grevelingenmeer. After the closure of the Grevelingen in 1971, new land was created. A number of sandbars dried up permanently and along the edges of the Grevelingen the salt marshes and a large part of the mud flats dried up. The Slikken van Flakkee and the Slikken van Bommenede are examples of this. Nature has free reign here. Due to the unique location and the many flood zones with salt water, special plants survive in these areas. Some areas are closed to the public due to the vulnerability of the special plants and/or breeding birds that occur there.

Fortified town of Zierikzee
A cozy, but certainly also beautiful town. Since 1971, Zierikzee enjoys a protected cityscape. There are no less than 568 monuments, so take plenty of time to experience the unique historical atmosphere here. The most famous building is the Sint-Lievensmonstertoren from 1506, which bears a striking resemblance to the Sint-Romboutstoren in Mechelen.

Zeeland windmills
During your route you will pass three Zeeland flour mills. De Korenbloem dates from 1873. Windmill De Lelie is a striking white windmill from 1868 that adorns the landscape near Elkerzee. Molen't Hert is the oldest mill on your route, it was built in 1748. On top of this mill is a weather vane in the shape of a deer.
