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 active drifting sand. It is a historic area: at the Vijflijst, where you pass, you see P02 - Celtic Fields, reconstructions of ancient fields measuring 40 by 40 meters. You will also find a recreated farm and storehouse or spieker from the Iron Age. A viewing platform offers a beautiful view of the entire complex. Then you walk straight through nature back to the end. What a peace, it is as if you go back in time here!

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.
