This route is one of the 42 stages of the Jacob van Lennep experience tour. A tour inspired by the trip that Van Lennep made in 1823 with his fellow student Van Hogendorp through the Netherlands. Click here for an overview of all stages.

Outdoor places
Friday, August 1. Van Lennep and Van Hogendorp pass the Hof te Dieren. Here in 1820 a new country house was completed by order of the Lady Van Wassenaer ( Van Hogendorp's stingy niece ) that Van Lennep describes as "(...) an example of bad taste". The building was destroyed during the Second World War. Further on they visit Miss Brantsen in Huis Rhederoord. They climb the hill near the estate and enjoy a beautiful view from the dome over the IJsselvallei, Doesburg, Keppel and Doetinchem. To give you an idea of this panorama, you can take a trip from Rhederoord to the Posbank via junctions 63, 25 and 53, after which you pick up the route again at junction 12. The walkers pass Biljoen Castle and make a stopover in Velp , drinking rum with water and sugar. Later in the afternoon they arrive at an inn just outside the Rijnpoort in Arnhem.

Time difference
The next day they walk to the Rosendael estate, where they ignore the famous gardens. About the new construction of Park Sonsbeek, Van Lennep notes that here "(...) an enormous amount of money is being spent". When they return to Arnhem, they notice that the church bells are 45 minutes away from those of Deventer, even though the distance between those cities is only 45 kilometers.

Funerary monument
On Monday 4 August, Van Lennep and Van Hogendorp will drive by diligence to Wageningen and Rhenen. The route takes a trip to Oosterbeek, because this is where the Grave Monument Jacob van Lennep is located.
