A special kids-bike-route (16.4 km) takes you past the windmills of Zuid-Beveland, ones that you can visit, inside too, if you’re lucky.
Once upon a time, the Netherlands boasted 10,000 windmills, now, though there are a mere 1,000 left. In Zeeland, corn mills abound, formerly spots where grain was ground to flour.
The hamlet of Blazekop, near Ovezande, has one of the few polder mills. Hey, did’ya know that the windmill’s sails have a language of their own? The miller – if you chance to meet – can tell you all about it!
This cycle route is devided in three loops - Blue route, 16.4 km - Green route, 22.3 km - Red route, 13,6 km
