Cycling around Schokland

A varied nature with beautiful forests, flowery grasslands, open water, tight polder roads, flat fields and green recreational areas



The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Schokland was the first in the Netherlands to gain World Heritage status in 1995. Here, the history of the Netherlands lies in a soil where once a turbulent Zuidersea ruled. From the Middle Ages, Schokland was a bare and swampy island until the Noordoostpolder was drained in 1942. Now it has a lush nature with forests and wet grasslands. In the polder landscape around Schokland, where the Zuidersea still existed at the beginning of the 20th century, you will now find an attractive landscape where grasslands, fields, orchards, water and forest alternate harmoniously.
