In the northwest of Friesland you can cycle again wonderfully quietly. You will find plenty of peace, space and small old villages with beautiful churches.

Church tower
From the village of Tzummarum you drive through the polders to Firdgum. You can already see the striking thirteenth-century church tower on the horizon. The church was demolished in 1794 because it was dilapidated. Then you cycle to the Zeedijk. It is wonderful to cycle here in the shelter of the dike, while you look out over the meadows and many ditches. A little before junction 60 you can climb up the dike to look out over the Wadden Sea.

Octagonal church
Oude Bildtzijl enjoys a protected village view, time seems to have stood still here. You pass Hoeve Noordveld, a special place to stay. You can see some monumental farms on the Oude Bildtdijk. In Sint-Annaparochie you will pass the octagonal Van Harenskerk from 1683. In Berlikum there is an octagonal domed church, this dates from 1779. Just outside Menaldum you drive along the Kievit, a thatched polder mill from 1802.
