The Hembrug terrain was a secret military spot with a weapon and munition factory and from 1890 it was home to a defense line comprising 46 forts, batteries, locks and dikes. It's still listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List today.
And toward the end of your journey... the windmills of quaint heritage village Zaanse Schans come into view. Idyllic!
