Zaanstreek

Enjoy cycling through the oldest industrial landscape in the Netherlands where once hundreds of windmills turned their wings at the same time. The Zaanstreek has a vast and fascinating peat meadow landscape with typical narrow and elongated meadows, wide ditches, lush reed strips, numerous pollard willows, grazing cows and boggy peat polders, forming the remnants of a former brackish marsh landscape. During this route you cycle through the nature reserves the Wormer- and Jisperveld and the Weijenbus-Vroonmeer, but also along the historic river the Zaan with beautiful views on the wooden mills of the Zaanse Schans, the typical green wooden houses and the monumental warehouses and factories from the 19th century.
