  • Hiking route 1264985
This walking route starts at Park Berkenrhode, where you can drink a cup of coffee at Le Grand Café before putting on your walking shoes. You take a nice walk along the Koelbergen to the Wekeromse Zand, one of the last places in Europe where you can still find actively drifting sand. It is a historic area: at the Vijfsprong, where you pass, you will see P02 - Celtic Fields, reconstructions of ancient fields of 40 by 40 meters. You'll also find a recreated Iron Age farm and storehouse or spiker. A viewing platform offers a beautiful view of the entire complex. You then walk back down through nature. What a peace, it's like going back in time for centuries!

The Wekeromse Zand near Ede was already inhabited in the Iron Age. This area is home to the largest Celtic fields complex in our country. Celtic fields are prehistoric fields consisting of fields of approximately 40 x 40 meters, surrounded by walls. Viewed from the air, Celtic fields look like a honeycomb. They belong to an agricultural system that was used all over northwestern Europe, from Sweden to Ireland.
