Zuidoostbeemster, Avenhorn, Schermerhorn

Everyone has heard of it at some point: the Beemster area. Around the year 800, like many other parts of the Netherlands, this part mainly consisted of peat. Dewatering with 50 windmills eventually led to this polder landscape, led by the engineer with the appropriate name Leeghwater (translation: emptywater) . Almost all mills have now been replaced by pumping stations. At Schardam you will encounter three locks, which are still very important for the water management in the province. Just like Schardam, Schermerhorn often fought against the water, but also against the fire. Because the houses were close together, a large part was destroyed during a city fire. In the Reformed Church, the devastating fire can be seen in miniature. We find many sights around the Beemster area. Museum in 't Houten Huis, Tingieterij Holland and the Ondermolen D are linked to this route. One of the most beautiful departure points is the World Heritage Droogmakerij de Beemster. This departure point is also the core of the theme route. For a snack and drink on the way, stop at the beautiful location of Brasserie de Kerckhaen. Why? See the allure of the moment of disembarkation. Make a day of it by renting a boat and floating on the waters in the Beemster area.
