Weerribben-Wieden National Park is one of the most beautiful nature reserves in the Netherlands. Cultural history is also not lacking on this route, because you pass through Giethoorn, among other things.

Venice of the North
From the Veneweg, which has been here since 1775, you have beautiful views over the water of the Beulakerwijde and Belterwijde. The hamlet of Ronduite is situated in the middle of the two banks on a peninsula. The name refers to the redoubt (military fortification) that once lay here. You cycle through a number of peat villages, you also drive through Giethoorn, which is nicknamed the Venice of the North.

Kalenberg reed
The Weerribben was mainly created by peat extraction. It is wonderfully quiet in this unspoilt nature reserve. On the Hoogeweg you will see a former paint shop and some old monumental farms. You will also pass through Kalenberg, a sailing village that was only accessible by boat until the late 1950s. The thin reed that grows along the banks of the Kalenbergergracht is often used as a covering on windmills and farms.
