Extensive reed beds and flowery hay fields. Lovely eddies, quiet lakes, large puddles and deep canals. That is what you can expect in the Giethoorn area.

The Wieden
The base for this cycling tour is Restaurant An\\\'t Waeter, where you can enjoy a snack and a drink on the terrace with a view over the water of the Weerribben. Together with the Weerribben, the De Wieden polder area is one of the most important wetlands in Europe. The dense swamps are home to rare plant species, including pine dewclaw, marsh dewclaw, blond sedge and slender woolly grass. The marsh harrier and rare short-eared owl hunt their prey above the trembling fens, blue grasslands and fens.

The Foeke
You will also come across a beautiful Dutch windmill along your route. The Foeke is still very young and was built in 1968. This stilt coater dominates the landscape - you can see it from afar - and can be viewed from very close up. The polder mill was built to grace the nearby visitor center. During this cycling tour, the beautiful nature is interspersed with the historic harbor towns of Vollenhove and Blokzijl, but we also do not skip Giethoorn.
