Brielse Meer The year 2020 marked the 50-year anniversary of the bicycle/foot ferry connection across the Brielse Meer. As of recently, you can cross it in silent mode, because it is now powered electrically, by batteries and solar panels. The pick-up points are on both the north and south sides of the lake. The ferry is also connected to the cycling network points 26 and 27.

Brielle Brielle is a historical citadel, boasting one of the best preserved fortifications in the Netherlands. It has received kings and queens during its rich history, and the likes of admirals, writers, poets and martyrs were among its inhabitants. The olde citadel was once the most famous pilgrimage site in South Holland, and is home to over 300 listed buildings. On April 1, 1572, Brielle was taken by the Watergeuzen (sea beggars) which earned it a prominent place within Dutch history. Cees de Bijl
