Ossenzijl southwards to Zwarte Water
Kalenberger Gracht / Heuvengracht / Wetering / Giethoornse Meer, Walengracht / Beulakerwride / Aremberger Gracht

For many, Kalenberger Gracht is the nicest one in Holland and this is surely not wrong. It’s the only one passing one of the few forest areas of the Netherlands. This is a real pleasure after never ending fields with flowers and vegetables.
We also meet some trees along Heuvengracht, followed by fields and other fields. At Muggenbeet by the Wetering, short of Giethoornse Meer, a splendid Pub with garden is awaiting us.
Along Walengracht, Beulaker Wijde and Aremberger Gracht, the surrounding is loosened up by trees and bushes.
