Description

At Hollandscheveld you will find Recreational Area Schoonhoven, the starting point of this route. In the middle of the greenery of the woods you will find two swimming lakes with a large sandy beach and green sunbathing areas. From there the route heads north. Junction 83 is located in the middle of the forests of Boswachterij Gees. Because the woods on the east side are slightly higher than the surrounding grassland, you have a beautiful view. The deciduous forest in the forestry was created in the 1930s. To make the area wetter, ditches are now being filled in and dams are being built and the water is drained from the area via a longer route. In a wetter area, much of the original flora and fauna gets a chance again. Adders live in the moist heath vegetation and grass snakes near the water of the fens. You can also find foxes, badgers, pine martens, hawks, buzzards and honey buzzards in the Gees forestry. At bicycle junction 81 you cycle along the Klinkenberg, or Motte Geeserveld. The Klinkenberg is the remains of a motte-and-bailey castle. It consisted of a main castle and an outer bailey and was surrounded by a figure-eight moat. During an archaeological investigation in 2002, a wooden post was dated to 1239. The Klinkenberg is a protected monument. Pancake farm De Ganzenhoeve is located on the beautiful De Groote Scheere estate, between Gramsbergen and Coevorden. It is the ideal place to step off the pedals and stretch your legs with a drink and something tasty. In the old farmhouse with a rural appearance, the pancakes are prepared according to traditional methods, with flour from the Windlust flour mill. A treat for young and old. The Anermolen in Ane dates from 1864. It is an octagonal bell mill, covered with thatch. In the middle of the 20th century the mill fell into disrepair and in 1981 it was completely restored. Grain is still milled on a voluntary basis, and the mill can be visited on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 13:00 to 16:30. The last part of the route leads back through the fields to Recreational Area Schoonhoven, your point of departure.
