Mijnsheerenland, Puttershoek, Oud-Beijerland

The municipality of Hoeksche Waard has only existed since 2019, but this collection of sixty polders is much older. Most of these polders were created after the Sint-Elizabethflood of 1421. A gigantic flood that wiped out most of the island. The oldest finds in this area date back to prehistoric times and were found in Puttershoek, Mijnsheerenland and Westmaas. Did you know that Puttershoek dates back to the Stone Age? Excavations have been carried out here that confirm this.

Discover more of the Hoeksche history during this cycle route and interrupt your cycle route for a visit to the Museum Hoeksche Waard at 't Hof van Assendelft.

When you cross the bridge at junction 26, you will arrive in Barendrecht. From here, you can clearly see the Geertruida Agathapolder. This is one of the polders in Hoeksche Waard that does not remain dry and is therefore a favourite spot for various meadow birds.

Have you learned enough about the Hoeksche Waard? Put your bicycle aside and visit one of the cosy terraces in the municipality.
