Description

Zutphen is a city with a rich Hanseatic past. At the time, there was plenty of trade in this city on the IJssel in herring, butter, beer, wine and wood. The striking towers, stately merchant houses and other historic buildings in the city now take you back to that time. You will cycle through a beautiful green landscape around Zutphen.

Tower City Zutphen
The entry point for this route is a bit outside Almen. At the start of the route you will cycle along the Wijngaard de Nieuwe Baankreis. The grapes are grown here in an organic way. The vineyard is also used as a free-range area for the chickens of the associated laying hen company. In this way, the space of this vineyard is optimally used. From Almen you cycle further Eefde and then you cycle into the Torenstad Zutphen. In the outskirts of Zutphen you will find two beautiful century-old country houses: Huis de Voorst and Huis Het Velde. Huis de Voort was built in the seventeenth century and the current Huis Het Velde dates from the sixteenth century.

Hotel Landgoed Ehzerwold

From Zutphen you cycle back to Almen. At the end of the route you can settle down at Hotel Landgoed Ehzerwold. Enjoy culinary delights in the restaurant and then enjoy a good night's sleep in one of the comfortable hotel rooms. From here you can also follow route 137089.

House Het Velde
The first mention of the white country house Het Velde dates from 1326. Little is left of that country house. The basis of the current country house was created in the sixteenth century during a renovation. At that time, the east wing and the octagonal turret at the front of the mansion were added. Today the house is used by the Police Academy and therefore you can only view it from the outside.
