Eleven villages route

We will guide our visitors in a sustainable way with an eleven villages bicycle ride along the monuments. The eleven villages of Kaag & Braasem are connected with each other via this route. How nice it is to see a monument in each village. Will you visit them all? Don’t forget to ask for a stamp at one of the monuments (one stamp per village, we will give you Nieuwe Wetering for free). A complete stamp-card can be exchanged for a bag of tulip bulbs as a colorful reminder in Spring to this sustainable day in September. Sustainability is the best policy

Route

The route is approximately 50 km. This route is based upon the cycle network. However sometimes we deviate from the route to visit some of the monument.

Start at any address in Kaag & Braassem. This route description starts at the Vlietmolen in Hoogmade, node number 47.

 

•           46 – 45 – 44 – 33 – 34 – 19

•           [❗] Do not cycle to 18, but trun right before the bridge to Vriezenkoop-Zuid in the direaction of Bilderdam

•           [❗] At the end of the street, turn left across the bridge to the monument (peat cutters houses) and node number 11

•           [❗] Via the other side of the water (Vriezenkoop-Noord), you cycle to node number 13

•           [❗]At node number 18, you will deviate from the route again. Turn right for the Dorpstraat to visit the Village church and node number 6.

Due to a test by Ferryservice Kaag until the end of September, it may be the other way round. Nevertheless, you will pay €3.- in total for the ferry services
