Description

Combine your fun bike ride with a nice trip to Germany, because this beautiful route starts in Emmerich am Rhein. The city in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia is located on the right bank of the river, which has a total length of 1,233 kilometers and has its source in the Swiss Alps. In Emmerich am Rhein you will find three beautiful churches in the center. Park your car at Profile Hesseling & Kluitmann"Der Fahrradspezialist\\\" and take the time to stroll through the city, while the bicycle specialist checks your steel steed. If minor defects have been rectified and you have shown your bicycle discount card at checkout (you will receive a 10 euro discount), you can start the cross-border cycling tour. You cycle back to Dutch soil, where you can visit the Avitera wine estate. The first vines were planted in 2004, with the help of many volunteers. There is a vineyard, a winery, a bodega and a terrace, which you have a beautiful view of the Montferland. Enjoy a glass of wine and the sun, surrounded by the grape plants, before heading to the Volharding mill. The flour mill is located in Zeddam. Built in 1891, the belt mill grinds grain on a voluntary basis. Near the mill is a nice shop where you can buy things to make your home a bit more cosy. There is also a lot of goodies for sale and at the wood craft shop or nice gifts for sale. You can also browse through the second-hand books for good reading material. Tours and events are regularly organized in the mill, allowing you to learn more about how the mill runs. You cycle to the Grafelijke Torenmolen via De Gildekoat museum farm, where you can see a collection of archaeological objects related to farm life in the past. This mill does not have the appearance of the mills that you usually see in the Netherlands. The old tower mill was built before 1441 and it is probably the oldest windmill in the Netherlands. The building seems a bit clunky, with its thick walls and robust appearance. In the mill, with which a volunteer miller grinds grain, there are still very old floorboards that make the mill very special. Cycling through the Achterhoek landscape of Montferland you finally arrive at Wijngaard't Oerlegoed, also known as Wijngoed Montferland. You can take a tour of the four hectares of vineyards. With that you also visit the winery and the wine cellars. Of course, a tasting should not be missed!
