Cycling route 727962

You can of course get a breath of fresh air in Zeeland. Especially if you like peace and quiet, the island of Noord-Beveland is ideal for a beautiful bike ride.
Shortly after boarding, you enter Colijnsplaat. In the Voorstraat you can enjoy the historic atmosphere through the many beautiful monumental buildings. In the polder with its extensive grasslands and agricultural land it is then wonderfully quiet cycling. The kilometers seem to pass by themselves here. You regularly see the characteristic image of a straight road lined with tall trees on the horizon. What a beautiful landscape this is!
All Saints' Flood
The fifteenth-century church tower is located in Kortgene: the only medieval building that survived the Allerheiligen flood from 1532 (which flooded all of North Beveland). At Restaurant de Korenbeurs at Landgoed Rijckholt you can get off for a delicious meal on the cozy terrace. On the north side of the island you can see some inlays: pieces of land that once served as an extra buffer for a possible dike breach. These polders consist of wet swamps or reed beds, a beautiful view.
