The Dender Region's name derives from the twisting Dender. Four beautiful cities connect the Dender like a read wire: Dendermonde, Aalst, Ninove and Geraardsbergen. They have a lot to offer when it comes to folkore, history and tradition. From Aalst we drive to Ninove along the Dender and the wooden post mills of Appelterre, Sint-Antelinks, Herzele and Mere and then back to Aalst. On the way back we will follow the Molenbeek valley and pass by a few windmills.
