Biking to Durgerdam is a great opportunity to continue your journey to its lovely nearby neighbor, Ransdorp (used to be called: Rarop). These two, used to share municipality management back in the 18th century.
Ransdorp is known for its gothic style 32 meter high church tower, built in 1502. The church and tower were severely burned in a fire.
