This short route at Kollum passes some beautiful spots in the village. Start on the Sylster Ryd and head in a northerly direction. Go under the Voorstraat Bridge and along the Wallen (quayside), where ships once unloaded their cargo. Continue through the park by going left or right of the island and onwards under the bridge. At the fork beyond the marina (jachthaven) take a right onto the Kollumer canal. After approx. 2 km at the end of the fork, turn right and immediately right again. This will take you back into Kollum along the Sylster Ryd. This route will take you back through the village via the Molenkampsbrug (Molenkamp Bridge) and return you to the starting point. Take a good look around you; Kollum is magnificent! You can find more information on this site.
