The Land of Leeghwater is particularly well suited to walking, cycling and boating trips. The local tourist information centres (in Dutch: VVV) can give you lots of information about all the different op-tions. On this site we will show you a few routes.

Herring and Hemp Route

The Herring and Hemp route takes you to all the former Schemer Island's historic sights. It tells you about the struggle against water, the rich seafairing life and about turning the surrounding inland seas Beemster and Schermer into dry land. There are exhibits and audiovisual presentations at different locations along the route.
