Old creeks and villages, vast polders and tranquility: you will find it all in sparsely populated Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. This route takes you from Oostburg on a beautiful trip through the border region with Belgium.
The route starts in Oostburg, the cozy center of West Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. Just below this village lies Het Groote Gat: a creek that was once part of a larger creek system that was connected to Het Zwin. In 1604 Het Groote Gat was included in the military line of Oostburg. In addition to a creek, the current nature reserve also consists of damp and salty grass lanes, reed beds and thickets.
Here too, the landscape consists of creeks, dikes and old towns, such as Sint-Margriete: a completely diked-in village. It is wonderfully quiet to make miles here. Just past the hamlet of Stroopuit, you cross the Passageule for the second time: a creek remnant that served as a defense line from 1604 to 1839 (with little success).
