The village of Varsseveld has only six thousand inhabitants. This place was probably inhabited very early; In the area, finds were made of reindeer hunters and settlements that traded with the Romans in Roman times. The name Wazovelde, the original name of Varsseveld, already appeared in a deed from 823. The Varsseveld cups form a small-scale cover sand relief; small hills protrude 1 to 5 meters above the surrounding area. In the lower area you see meadows alternately, while fields lie on the cups and deciduous and coniferous forests interrupt the landscape. On the way you will pass the Van Hal Mill (hull/remainder). The flour mill in was built in 1866 on an elevation and is therefore a belt mill. The mill was named after the family who owned the mill until 1999. The round stone mill was heavily damaged during the Second World War. Part of the blades had already broken off after a lightning strike and the flour mill was dismantled in 1957. After the mill came under the management of Stichting Korenmolen Voorst in 1999, it was restored in 2010. In 2013, Van Hal's Mill is once again in good working order. You continue cycling and finally arrive in Varsseveld. One of the remnants of the rich history of the village is the De Engel scaffolding mill, built in 1850. In 1936 the mill's contents, including millstones, blades and windlass, were sold because the then owner was due to the economic crisis in the 1930s. literally) saw no more bread in the windmill company. In 1957 the mill hull became a monument and in'67 the municipality bought the remainder to enable a possible restoration of the mill. In the end, it was not until 1976 that the mill was festively reopened on May 22. In 2010 the mill was temporarily shut down because there were some cracks in the blades, but this shortcoming was quickly remedied.
