Description

Between Oosterhout and Breda you will find a green area with polders and forests that alternate. Go out and about through nature and through the cozy Brabant towns in this area. Along the way you can admire various sights to make your trip even more interesting.

Windmill De Hoop
The center of Oosterhout is the starting point of this cycling tour. From here you cycle to the De Hoop windmill in Den Hout. This flour mill was built in 1837 as the fourth mill in Oosterhout. The millers of the other three mills in Oosterhout were not happy with the construction of this mill, because they saw their income drop as a result. After the Second World War, the mill was replaced by an electric mill, after which the mill came to a standstill. Nowadays the mill still runs from time to time, but it is no longer used for milling. From here you cycle further along the Markkanaal to Breda.

The Spinolaschans
Just before you enter Breda, you pass the Spinolaschans. This sconce was used by the Spanish troops during the Siege of Breda in 1637. You can hardly see the military past of this sconce, because now you can find lush natural beauty. In 2007, a number of pools were constructed around the redoubt to connect the Vuchtpolder and the nature reserve around the redoubt.
