From Zevenbergen you can drive straight into the countryside. Here you will find panoramic views over extensive grasslands, but also places with a rich history. Such as Willemstad and Klundert.

The Mark
The route starts on the edge of Zevenbergen. A charming town where you can see Fleur, a flour mill from 1841. In the countryside you drive through a landscape of wide grasslands, streams and the river Mark. How nice and quiet it is here. On the car-free dikes you can enjoy a breath of fresh air while enjoying the surroundings. At the cozy Eethuis Family - Fijnaart you can enjoy a coffee with something delicious at your leisure.

Klundert
Just outside Fijnaart is the Oude Molen, a flour mill from 1845. Further on you pass through Willemstad. In the old center you can taste the rich history of this former fortified town. Via the Oostdijk you drive to Noordschans, a village named after the former Fort Hollandia that was lost in a flood in 1682. On the outskirts of Klundert you can see some sixteenth-century fortifications. They were part of the Defense Line of the Hollands Diep.

Fort Bovensluis between Willemstad and Noordschans is part of the Defense Line of Willemstad and had to provide cover for Fort De Ruijter, now Fort Sabina. The fort was built in 1861-1862 and probably served to replace a battery for the artillery of Fort Haaren from 1673. With the construction of Fort Bovensluis, the dilapidated fort Haaren was demolished and redesigned. Four cannons, Coehoorn mortars, a wet ditch and a redoubt were built here. The defense network served as a barracks with 188 soldiers. Concrete bunkers were dug in the 20th century. After the fort lost its military function, the building was bought by Mr. Boertjes in 1952. He knew what to do with the now dilapidated fort: thanks to the thick walls, it turned out to be a perfect cold store for potatoes. Until today, the fort is in the hands of the Boertjes family and is one of the nice sights in Willemstad. It is located in the middle of the recreation park of the same name and houses the cozy family restaurant Fort Bovensluis.
