Brekkenroute

29.0 km

You cycle along the Oudegaaster Brekken, water that is directly connected to the lakes. Everywhere you look is water. Special: The area is an absolute favourite of the pink-footed goose. Almost all pink-footed geese winter here in Southwest-Friesland and then go to Spitsbergen to breed. There are a lot of terraces on the Merk in Workum (junction 17). The Jopie Huisman Museum is just 50 meters further along.Oudega, with the largest ‘spinnenkopmolen’ (spider mill) in the Netherlands, has the café-restaurant Trije Doarpen. The lock (junction 20) is a nice spot with all the old ships that are reminiscent of times gone by.
