'Fortenroute' (the fort cycle route)

43.2 km fietsen - Oost Zeeuws-Vlaanderen

VVV Zeeland

The so-called State-Spanish lines are the foundation for this Eastern Zeeland-Flanders route by bike (43,2 km). Journey through the turmoil of history, border country-style, along old fortresses, dike lines and redoubts.

In the 1568-1648 Eighty Years’ War, both sides (the Northern Netherlands and the Spanish crown) were ensconced behind defensive lines. Some remnants of these State-Spanish Lines are to be found near Axel.

The 60-metre-tall Axel water tower is sure to stand out – why don’t you clamber up, the viewing point at 50 metres has spectacular views waiting for you!

All VVV-Inspiration Points have it, and you can get it from https://www.vvvzeeland.nl/en/shop/vvv-route-fortenroute/c-26/p-126/
