Brielle is a beautiful old fortress town that is also called Den Briel. Yes, the town where Alva lost his glasses. In Voornes Duin you can enjoy the varied nature.

Stone Baak
At Restaurant Aan Zee you can enjoy a tasty and sustainable meal in a special place. Then you ride your legs loose on the wooded edge of Oostvoorne. From a distance you can already see the Stenen Baak, a former lighthouse from 1630 that can be visited from time to time. The largely seventeenth-century fortress of Brielle is one of the best-preserved fortifications in the Netherlands. Thanks to the many old buildings you will experience a wonderful historical atmosphere here.

Museums
Historisch Museum Den Briel is highly recommended. You will learn more about the history of the fortified city here. Just past the ribbon village Tinte you pass Museum in den Halven Maen. Here you can take a wonderful jump back in time thanks to old objects such as groceries, cans and tobacco products. Via Oostvoorne you make another loop through Voornes Duin, a beautiful nature reserve. Enjoy the peace and quiet here, while cycling through the dune forests.
