The old Achterhoek landscape owes its beauty to the past. The marshy and nutrient-poor heathlands had little to offer to the first pioneers and created difficult circumstances. The farmers have therefore made a major contribution to the creation of a picturesque landscape. Everything in this region exudes an authentic atmosphere; characteristic hedgerows, babbling brooks, rolling fields studded with wildflowers, historic mills, winding roads and ancient farms. Nature, culture and history go hand in hand here. Bike with us Route map Bike junctions
