Icon description route Description

Discover the splendor of historic windmills interspersed with a touch of archaeology on an unforgettable cycling tour through the West Flemish landscape. Start with the Peace Mill, a monument that bears witness to a past of war and resistance, located at the highest point of Klerken. Next, the route treats you to the majestic whitewashed Couchezmolen, one of the largest stone mills in Belgium and a gem of mill architecture in Zarren. Just further on stands the Wullepitmolen, a nostalgic wooden post mill with a tumultuous history.

Enrich your journey with an educational break at the Archaeological Site Museum of Werken, where you dive into the timeline from the Bronze Age to the Middle Ages. A pedal stroke further, you meet the Kruisstraatmolen, still proudly operational after a lively history. In Koekelare, you find the serene Käthe Kollwitz Museum and the poignant Fransmansmuseum. Here, between culture and remembrance, history becomes tangibly close. A route full of stories where each pedal stroke brings a piece of heritage to life.
