To see & To do

The Wormer and Jisperveld

"In the north of the Zaan region lies the Wormer and Jisperveld. In this peat meadow area you will find shallow ditches, vast meadows and hundreds of islets. Did you know that this is one of the most important bird areas in Europe? Almost all meadow birds found in the Netherlands breed here. So a paradise for birdwatchers but also a very nice place for refreshing summer activities on the water. If you want to explore the field, I would like to tip you to these addresses!" says Ellen Groenveld.
