Shaved sheep, flowering verges, yellow dotters in the water, swallows hunting for insects. Pause the world for a moment and step into a school album by Jetses or one of the Verkade album albums by Thijsse. Balm for the soul, this beautiful walk through the outskirts of Schagen. You will pass the Tolkervaart full of yellow dotters, hemmed by reeds and willow roses and flowering potato fields on the left. Walking on the Galgenkade is, contrary to what the name suggests, also a party. When you pass pollard willows, the nameplate at a private road on the left might make you smile: 'No worries road'. Shrieking lapwings, roaming geese, barking farm dogs and neighing ponies and horses. No worries indeed. You will also come across De Groenvelder water mill with a miniature mill in the front garden. You enter the quiet and romantic Valkkoog via the quiet Valkkogerweg. As if time has stood still here. Have lunch at the church, nowadays used for concerts, with some playground equipment at the front with a picnic bench and a mini cemetery at the back. "Everything is so beautiful," cried a small butterfly. I love life so much, but tomorrow I am dead 'is written on one of the marks. The church of Valkkoog was built in the sixteenth century with older brick materials. Based on finds during the restoration in the early eighties, it is likely that there was a predecessor. The church is late Gothic and has a five-bore deep nave. A wooden board in the facade indicates: "Rebuilt in 1839". After the decaying tower was demolished, a small wooden tower was built in the middle of the roof. In 1865 this turret was removed again and the current tower was placed on the site of the original tower. Inside the church is a remarkable painting, high in the middle on the back wall. It represents a falcon in a purely religious environment. This falcon is a reminder of the past of Valkkoog, which was the koog (the land outside the dykes) in the Middle Ages, where graves and gentlemen came to practice falcon hunting. The falcon in the painting, however, is unclear. The painter probably meant a peregrine falcon. There are several gravestones in the church, the oldest indicates the date 1606. In 1871 the Gebr .. Adema from Leeuwarden built the organ. Like the church, the organ is on the list of monuments. The West Frisian peasant life has been preserved in Museum Vreeburg, where you walk past in the historic part of Schagen. Old farmhouse rooms with utensils and old furniture open a door to the past. The museum is located in a 17th-century city farm and also houses authentic carriages. On the ten West-Frisian Thursdays, all objects can be seen in their original function. You reach the station again via shopping streets via the Grote Markt with many terraces. The end of a very nice walk.
