The Landscape

The National Park Sallandse Heuvelrug is located in the middle of a beautiful undulating landscape with one of the largest contiguous heath areas in northwestern Europe. With its steep slopes, it forms a striking part of the landscape in the province of Overijssel. Magnificent panoramas from the 150,000-year-old push moraine are therefore guaranteed. From the foot of the Sallandse Heuvelrug to Deventer lies the Sallandse Landweer, a medieval defense line that has left its mark on the landscape. The castles and fortifications have disappeared, but the ancient ramparts and moats are a welcome addition to a rustic landscape with farms, forests, hedgerows, meadows, fields, country estates and slow-flowing streams.
