The Veluwezoom is known for'Gelders Arcadia\\\', the landscape of vast estates, country estates and castles. You will find here, for example, Landgoed Middachten, Park and Castle Rosendael, House Zypendaal, Castle Doorwerth and Villa Sanoer. The hilly landscape has always attracted wealthy families, who built their country houses and laid out the most beautiful gardens and parks. With the arrival of the train connections in the 19th century, more and more wealthy Westerners came to the estate zone Gelders Arcadia to enjoy this unique landscape and build their'outsides\\\'. And we can still enjoy those many outdoor areas in this area. The two cycling routes along various castles and estates give you a special insight into life then and now.

This route leads you through the eastern part of the Veluwezoom where you cycle through the municipality of Rheden and Rozendaal. The varied landscapes give you a good idea of why this part of the Netherlands is so attractive for people to settle here. You cycle along the IJssel and associated floodplains, but you also encounter height differences and beautiful heathland in National Park Veluwezoom. The main castles and estates you pass during this cycle route are the privately inhabited Kasteel Biljoen in Velp, Landgoed Middachten in De Steeg and Park and Kasteel Rosendael in Rozendaal. Both Landgoed Middachten and Park and Kasteel Rosendael have beautiful gardens where you can take a lovely walk during the summer months. Go in Park Rosendael looking for the famous'imposters\\\', but be careful not to get wet! The special interior of both castles can also be admired on specific days and give a good idea of how people used to live.
