De Zaan, de Poel and 't Zwet
Wormer, Nail Drill, Neck
There is a beautiful nature reserve in the vicinity of Wormer: the Wormer and the Jisperveld. A low-lying area that would be a huge lake thanks to the many water mills. The area is surrounded by dikes from which you have a beautiful view. You cycle along nice villages in a real Dutch landscape. It is also the area of the Defense Line of Amsterdam, so you will also be surprised by sturdy fortresses. But don't forget to enjoy the many birds.
Bicycle route Beemster and Purmerend
Purmerend, Middenbeemster, Noordbeemster
A beautiful part of North Holland with different landscapes. The eastern part of the cycle route goes along straight canals and the polder landscape as we know it from the beautiful calendar photos. Not for nothing world heritage. The western part of the route is very different: you meander along the Zuidbeemster. Along the way you pass beautiful spots and charming villages.
Cycle route along the Zaan
Engewormer, Wormerveer, Zaandijk, Westzaan, Zaandam
Wonderful cycling through the typical Dutch landscape! You will indeed pass the Zaanse Schans, so you will undoubtedly encounter windmills on this cycling route. But the Hembrug Museum and the Czaar Peterhuisje are also excellent starting points. But the highlight is the windmills, which helped win the battle against the water. You also pass partly through an industrial area, so you have to keep a piece of industrial for this cycle route!
