You reach this beautiful village beside the water via a floating pontoon bridge. From the quay you have a great view of boats sailing past on the Noordhollandsch Canal. In the distance, nine wind turbines spin their blades to convert wind into green energy. Yes, in Burgervlotbrug, grateful use is made of the elements: wind, water and - with a bit of luck - sun. Because on a sunny day everyone cycles in the direction of the beautiful North Sea Beach of Petten, which is under a kilometre from here. So cycle over the pontoon bridge and beside the flower bulb fields, which bloom magnificently here every year.
