Cycling around Barchem


"Rolling landscapes, castles and country estates, characteristic farms, vast meadows, ancient trees and winding roads."

If you like peace and quiet and want to fully enjoy nature and landscape, you will find an ideal environment for recreation in the Achterhoek. For decades it has been an inspiring environment for writers, poets and philosophers. But even without spiritual aspirations, the ancient landscape is a true paradise to unwind. Behind every bend in the road, the landscape shows a different face. Nowhere else is the variation as big as here. You move from dense forests to small flowered meadows bordered by thick hedgerows and from picturesque villages to historic towns. And with its meandering brooks, the stately country estates, many Saxon farms and countless ancient trees, the landscape in the Achterhoek is simply irresistible!
