The Bergherbos is a hilly forest that appears on the horizon from a distance because it is located on a moraine between Doetinchem, Didam and's-Heerenberg. Small church villages, fields and meadows surround the landscaped forest. It is a varied area, because the slopes of the moraines were originally covered by forests and heath. Bergherbos is home to more than 70 different bird species, including efficient hunters such as the buzzard and the goshawk. Deer and badgers also like to scurry between the trees and special plants. The observant connoisseur will recognize the swamp and wood pansy, the wood anemone, bracken fern and marsh marigold in this area. After 12 kilometers on the route you will come across the remnants of the s-Heerenberg windmill. The mill was built in 1829 and is absolutely no longer able to grind. You can see the reason at a glance: only the hull is left. A little further on is Huis Bergh, which quickly attracts the eye. The medieval castle, built in the thirteenth century, is surrounded by a moat and is semi-enclosed by a rampart. The original design of the defensive castle has been affected by extensions, embellishments, fires and wars. What remains is an impressive view of a beautiful castle.
