Description

Beach, beautiful overgrown dunes where many plants and animals come across: Voorne-Putten is so beautiful. And you will find nice fortified towns!

Voornes Duin
You cycle to Oostvoorne via Voornes Duin. This area belongs to the species-rich dunes of Europe! Once there was a tram line from Rotterdam to the beach boulevard of Oostvoorne. Many Rotterdammers still come here for a day at the sea. In the old village center you will find, among other things, the restored ruin of the medieval Jacoba Castle, the country residence of Jacoba van Bavaria. Just outside the village is the Oostvoorne, a corn mill from 1821.

Historic Brielle
You also pass through the old center of Brielle, the largely seventeenth-century fortress is one of the best-preserved fortifications in the Netherlands. You will see the Vliegend Hert, a corn mill from 1862. Further on you will discover even more beautiful things: the ruin of Ravesteijn Castle, which is actually called Slot Heenvliet. The castle began as a wooden reinforcement around the year 1100. Back at your starting point, you can enjoy a drink at Resort Poort van Zeeland, near Hellevoetsluis.
