VVV-Route: Vlas- en Fortenroute Koewacht
This themed cycle route takes you through the flax region in the eastern part of Zeeuws-Vlaanderen. Flax has traditionally been grown and processed in the villages around Hulst for centuries. You will cycle through the polders with their many flax fields. All of the roads are tarmacked but do not always have separate cycle paths.
