  • Hiking route 1275386
Your walking route starts with a cup of coffee on the beautiful terrace of Restaurant / Hotel Oortjeshekken. The Bisonbaai is a former sandy wing. From the footpath you can see wild flowers and plants, you can also encounter Konik horses and Galloway cattle. Then you walk through the Greenlands nature reserve. From the lookout tower you have a beautiful panorama of the area. at the crossroads of your walking route you will pass K01-Ooij - Ijssellinie, a relic of the Cold War. In the Ooijpolder considerable remains of the IJssellinie can be found, which was constructed between 1950 and 1955. In emergencies, the Waal could be closed with a weir, so that a small part of the Ooij protrudes like an island above the water. You can still find remains of tank casemates, command posts and an emergency hospital.
