We have already arrived at the penultimate part of the Zuiderzee route . On this sixth stage you cycle from Muiderberg along the IJsselmeer to Diemen, Volendam and Purmerend, among others. Enjoy the vast polders and the sights that have everything to do with water along the way.

The New Dutch Waterline
Hotel Restaurant Het Rechthuis in Muiderberg is the starting point of this route. From here you are in no time in the fortified city of Muiden. In this historic city you will find various buildings of the New Dutch Waterline such as the Muizenfort and the famous Muiderslot. This historic defense line with all kinds of fortresses was built in 1815 to better protect the country during wartime. You also cycle over the imposing sea lock of Muiden, where beautiful ships regularly enter. From here you set course in the direction of Diemen and then you cycle on to Monnickendam and Volendam through the polders.

Rest in Purmerend
After that it is only a short cycle through Edam and further to the end point in Purmerend.

The Katwoudermolen
Just outside Volendam you can take a look at the Katwoudermolen. This mill drains the surrounding polders and meadows. The mill was built here around 1649 and taken into use around 1650. In 1986 the mill was restored, where a new hood with blades was installed.
