We reach Holwerd via vast polders and the highest mound in the Netherlands. Along the way you pass the Noardereech salt marsh center on the edge of the Noard-Fryslân Bûtendyks nature reserve, where you can spot enormous numbers of birds. The perfect place to get a breath of fresh air on the Waddendijk.Before Holwerd you pass Hogebeintum. The 90-inhabitants village is partly located on the highest mound in the Netherlands. On top of the 9 m high mound is a picturesque church dating from the 13th century. Of course you climb up here.
