  • Cycling route 117900
Your cycle route starts at Gasterij Natural Smeerling. From here you cycle through the Groningen landscape, enjoying the spaciousness. Then you arrive in Wedde at the Wedderborg. This deposit is also called Huis te Wedde, because it is not actually a real deposit or fortified house. The Huis te Wedde was previously used as a defensive structure. For centuries, the Lords of Westerwolde resided here. There are also two beautiful windmills in Wedde. One of these is the Wedderveer, a tower mill built in 1938 that was used for sawing wood. The other mill in the village is the Weddermarke. This ground sailer is a successor to the original Weddermarke, which burned down in 1898. You will also pass Veldkamp\\\'s Meul\\\'n, a tower mill dating from 1855.
