Historic fishing villages and provincial towns, in their glory days a centre of international trade and industry - the LF22 takes you along the former Zuiderzee coast.

Once a raging sea, now a tamed sweet water lake: the IJsselmeer. Centuries of battling against floods ended in 1932 when the Zuiderzee was dammed off from the North Sea, changing this region forever. The provincial harbour towns of Makkum, Stavoren and Kampen tell the story of a rich past. The LF22 also takes you further inland to the national parks De Wieden and De Weerribben, where you get an idea of what large parts of Holland must have looked like before man put his stamp on it.
