During this cycle trip the difference in the polders can be seen clearly. The more Southerly the polder, the more changeable the contours are and the more sandy the ground becomes. Because of the difference in types of soil the more varied the polder landscape becomes with creeks and woods.
Nice to know:
The flax industry was a very important source of income in this area. Now there are still two modern flax processing companies left. You can learn more about the cultivation and processing of flax in the flax museum “`t Vlasschuurken” in Koewacht.
