Icon description route Description

Your tour of Zeeland's heritage starts in Cadzand, with the first showpiece: the Molen van Nieuwvliet, a piece of 19th-century nostalgia under the sails of the Zeeland sky. A little further on, the Molen Luteyn, with only the hull remaining, is another striking landmark in Nieuwvliet. Then the history of Oostburg unfolds at the Loofort, a silent witness to the State-Spanish Lines. The route takes you along the ramparts of Sluis, where you cycle among the remains of historic defensive works and earn a rest.

Paddling further along the water, you reach Fort Hazegras, where you enter the layered history of a fortress that witnessed several conflicts throughout history. Cycling further, you will pass in Retranchement the ramparts of Retranchement of the same name, which decorate the landscape with their green ribbon. Almost at the end of the route you will notice that nature and history come together in the beautiful Zwin, an area where flora and fauna flourish. This is the ideal conclusion to a tour full of culture, history and natural beauty that Zeeland has to offer.
