Historical monuments
From Eelde you set course for Norg. Around Norg you will find three contiguous forest areas: the Molenduinen, the Langeloërduinen and the Oosterduinen. Just outside Norg you will find Molen De Hoop from 1857. This mill was formerly used as a peeling mill. A little further on you cycle past the monumental mansion De Tonckensborg. In the Middle Ages there was already a building on this site and in 1755 the house came into the hands of the Tonckens family. You then cycle further to Steenbergen, where you can take a look at Hunebed D01. This large dolmen, which is still almost completely intact, is located just outside Steenbergen in the Noorderduinen.

Mansinge estate
South of Roden you cycle over the Mensinge estate. This estate probably dates from the 14th century and you will find, among other things, a fully restored country house where you can take a look. The original inventory of the house such as furniture, china and glassware can all still be found in the mansion. Pay a visit to the house and imagine yourself in former times.
