From Terp to Wad and Crop
Book a day trip with the panorama touringcar of the Seedykster Tour!
May 24th to September 20th from Restaurant De Molen Vrouwenparochie. Get an idea of how people live here with the Wadden Sea and how agriculture has developed here in North Fryslân. Important for our food!
The tour starts at 10 o'clock a.m. in 't Bildt in the village Vrouwbuurtermolen on the premises of De Kultuurfabriek, Leijsterhegedyk 27B, 9071 XB Oude Leije.
The route first goes to the hill of Hegebeintum: the first ideas from the past to keep dry feet. Here is the first stop. Excursion, coffee / tea and orange pie.
Then to the Wadden Sea coast: the turnaround in the 1970s from land reclamation to nature in the Wadden Sea region can be seen and experienced with this journey.
The uniqueness of this trip is that we come to an area of Het Fryske Gea (the provincial association for nature conservation in Fryslân), the Noorderleegh (salt marsh), which is usually closed to the public. Statements are given by guides from the field: people who have seen this area develop and change. If the weather permits, lunch is served on the salt marsh.
The tour then continues on a scenic route through the area to the Oudebildtdijk. Here, in a specially cultivated arable land before 2018 (Cultural Capital), all crops grown in this region are (once) cultivated, in which the changes in time and climate are also visible. There is a tour of about 1 hour. And what to drink.
And so it goes: through the Bildt landscape, past art farms and a sculpture route back to Vrouwbuurstermolen where between 17 and 18 is the end of the route.
The start is in Vrouwbuurtermolen because this place is easily accessible by public transport: bus 72, from 08.54 hours from the station in Leeuwarden. Return every hour in the evening.
There is a possibility for a dinner on your own occasion in restaurant De Molen (The Mill), www.demolenvrouwenparochie.nl. This restaurant is located opposite the departure and arrival place De Kultuurfabriek (Culture Factory).
The tour starts at 9.45 am, the reception from 9.30 am.
