You make a beautiful trip through the 'other Brabant': that of the wide polders and water-rich nature reserves. First you drive a bit through Kelsdonk. This quiet nature reserve has preserved its rugged character, you will see flowery grasslands, alders and willows. You drive further through the polders on leafy roads. You pass old farms, just after junction 35 you cross the Mark. You drive over the Markdijk to Zwartenberg: this hamlet is the only town on your route! You will pass the Zwartenbergse Molen, a beautiful polder mill that was built in 1889. Then you drive over the tree-lined Haagse Dijk along alder forests, marshes and hay meadows. One of the most beautiful cycle paths in Brabant! Back at De Turfvaart you grab a terrace. Enjoy that Brabantian!

The Zwartenbergse Molen is the only mill in North Brabant that still has a real grinding function. Yet windmills were not only used to produce grain from cereals, but also to reclaim polder areas. The mill can move a maximum of 80 cubic meters of water per minute.
