Southwest Veluwe has many castles, country houses and estates. Start the Estate Route at one of the mentioned nodes and follow the arrows with the next node during the bike ride. You can also start at the VVV/ANWB at Molenstraat 80 in Ede (near junction 61). There you will find many more cycling and walking routes in handy maps and beautiful guides. Landgoed Kernhem is located between nodes 61 and 60, which is one of the oldest estates in the Netherlands. The monumental building dates from 1750. You can take a walk through the herb garden, past water features, a maze, the magical'bloodstone\\\', stately avenues and a bat sanctuary. Near junction 60 is the'Doesburgermolen\\\'. The standard mill from 1620 still runs on windy days. The geographical center of the Netherlands is located in the Lunterse Buurtbos, near junction 75. After junction 76 you cycle over the Wekeromse Zand, a living shifting sand with interesting transitions to lichen-rich bunt grass vegetation and heath, surrounded by old Scots pine forest, younger coniferous forest, heathland and arable land with prehistoric fields: Celtic Fields. On the Ginkelse Heide (between junctions 62 and 64) the Allied airborne landings took place on 17 and 18 September 1944 as part of Operation Market Garden. This is commemorated annually at the Airborne monument next to the sheepfold, along the Verlengde Arnhemseweg (N224). Landgoed Hoekelum is located between Bennekom and Ede, at junction 90. The estate has a rich and long history from about 1300. The castle and the moat have been well preserved, as well as the staff buildings, which now house a camping and cheese farm with a VERY LUWE shop. Here you can buy dairy products and homemade Hoekelum cheese. (C) This cycling route is offered to you by the Veluws Bureau for Tourism. For more information about this region, visit www.develuwe.nl
