Alternate line walk from the outskirts of Pijnacker through young polder forests and new nature. The last part you walk through the beautiful city center of Delft. During this walk you will become acquainted with a number of young nature and recreation areas, laid out in and around the Polder van Biesland. They must prevent this part of the Randstad from closing up. This is how you walk through Delftse Hout. This recreational area is laid out around an old lake where sand has been extracted. It is the 'green lung' of Delft. Another example of new nature development is the creek area that you pass during the walk. Here you will find something back from the old 'rush land', when there was an inaccessible swamp of reeds and rushes in a fine-meshed network of creeks and channels. Sand ridges have been created in this polder that mimic the creek ridges of the past. The soil was first dug up to the sand and then flooded. Many birds live among the sand ridges, such as mallard, tufted duck, wigeon, grebe, cormorant, blue heron, coot, goose and spoonbill. The Bieslandse forest is also new nature. As with the design of the creek area, the original lines of the landscape have been taken into account as much as possible in the construction of the forest. Ash, oak, poplar and willow grow there. Hikers make their way through a young dense forest. In the past, peat ships sailed from the peat areas near Nootdorp to Delft via the Tweemolentjesvaart (you pass by here). Along the way the ships encountered two obstacles.For example, at the location of the lock just past the Al3, a dam was in the canal that ships had to be pulled over. The ships then had to pass through the so-called Duivelsgat to enter Delft. This was a narrow archway in the city wall, through which not every colossal could easily pass. In Delft you walk past the St. Huybrecht tower. This tower was built at the beginning of the 16th century against a defensive wall of raised ground. At the time, the tower consisted of three parts. The vaulted space at the bottom was used for storage of ammunition and weapons. You could shoot from the mezzanine and upper floors. You will find the Nieuwe Kerk on the Markt. This is the second parish church in Delft, built between 1383 and 1510. The church contains, among others, the tomb of Willem van Oranje from 1614-1622 and the royal tomb.
