Cycle route through the polders of Oostburg
The Erasmus family laid out a rich planting at their farmstead. After the Forestry Commission bought the farmstead in 1971, they laid out another twelve hectares of forest. It now forms De Knokkert nature reserve, which covers more than 27 hectares. There are special animal species to be found here, such as the tree frog, the crested newt, the long-eared owl and the redshank.
The nature reserve lies to the south-west of Nieuwvliet, which is popularly known as Sinte Pier after Saint Peter, the patron saint of the church. Enjoy this nature-rich cycle route through the flat polders around Oostburg.
