Muiden and Weesp are two beautiful old fortified towns where there is plenty to see and experience. In the countryside you can enjoy the peace and the varied natural beauty.

The Diem
Cycling along the dike along the meandering Gein you can enjoy a typical Dutch view of meadows, cows and monumental farms. You will also see the Broekzijdse Molen, a polder mill from 1641. A little later you will come across another old polder mill on the Gaasp: the Community Mill from 1708. Further on you will drive past the Diemerbos and through the idyllic surroundings along the river Diem.

In Muiden you can still see many old buildings. What a nice atmosphere! You can walk in at the Muizenfort, which was built at the end of the nineteenth century. You drive on a car-free road to Muiderberg. Climb the dike for a view over the IJmeer. In the polder you pass the Meermolen/Onrust, a polder mill from 1809. Along the Vecht you drive into Weesp, there is plenty to experience in this historic fortified town. The route ends at Fort near Nigtevecht.

The concept for a defense line in which the low-lying polder landscape is flooded dates back to 1589. With the fortresses in the fortified towns of Muiden, Weesp, Naarden, Gorinchem and Woudrichem, the line was guarded from the higher ground. Explore these unique fortresses in the unique polder landscape.
