Bikerroute

Victory of the water

DISTANCE 62 KM

This route (61 km) guides you past poignant spots, mindful of the 1953 Flood. A year that is forever etched into the minds and hearts of Zeeland, when 1,853 people lost their lives in a night-time February storm.

In November of that same year, the final hole in the dike was closed up, in Ouwerkerk. Now a commemorative spot, with nearby Watersnoodmuseum filling in the blanks with photos, films and eyewitness accounts of the disastrous night.

Another good place to see is Dreischor. An 800-year-old village, formerly famed for its flax, has monument status now, and is one of Zeeland’s best-preserved ring-shaped villages.

All VVV-Inspiration Points have it, and you can get it from www.vvvzeeland.nl/shop.
