Natural Area of ​​Leinwijk

Discover the beautiful Natural Area of ​​Leinwijk

The natural area of ​​Leinwijk located in the municipality of Midden-Groningen offers pleasant hikes along the great Zuidlaardermeer lake. You can see marshes, farmland and different species of birds.

In addition you will have the opportunity to observe the magnificent and unique windmill of Kikkoman, built in 1925, then transferred in the year 2000 to its current location. Indeed, it is the only windmill of this style remaining in the Netherlands and is therefore designated as part of the “national monuments”

The name of Kikkoman is given to this “polder mill” because it is the name of its sponsor, a large Japanese multinational with a branch in Sappemeer.

If you venture a little further in the nature, you will meet some splendid cabins  built in wood which will allow you to observe the birds, but especially to be able to benefit from an excellent panoramic view on this zone.
