The Beemster Route is a varied bike tour through one of North Holland’s most beautiful stretches of reclaimed land. On your bike you’ll have great views over this vast polder fetauring meadows, farm land, bulb fields and windmills. Along the route you’ll encounter dozens of beautiful farmhouses with a cheese-cover shape that is typical of the region. They are often lined with old fruit trees. On the border of this old peat polder you’ll pass through scenic villages such as Grootschermer and De Rijp.
West of the Beemster the route will take you through the Eilandspolder, a meadowy area that evolved from swamps. In the summer this water-rich environment is crowded with birds.
