After a wonderful night's sleep at MOoij Bed and Breakfast you will experience a wonderful tour through the Gelderse Poort. The first step is to loosen up your legs in the roughened floodplain area just outside Nijmegen. You drive over the Waalbrug, on the left you have a beautiful panorama of Nijmegen. Further on you pass through Landgoed Doornik, a place full of cultural history in the middle of the forests of Park Lingezegen. Over the dyke you cycle further along the Waal and the floodplains. Stop by for a cup of coffee at Camping De Waay! After Pannerden you drive through the Lobberdense Waard. The Millingerwaard is a beautifully rugged nature reserve where you can get a breath of fresh air and enjoy the silence. On the edge of Kekerdom is the Saint Laurentius Church from the fourteenth century, a picture.

Sights

Landgoed Doornik

1a
6681KG Lingewaard

Hidden between old and new groves, in the middle of the Lingezegen park, part of the Woerdt area, the Tournai estate is within walking / cycling distance of the center of Nijmegen. This centuries-old estate, destroyed several times by war or by the river, has the ambition to become a stopping place for art and culture.

Kasteel Doornenburg


6686BX Lingewaard

A castle already stood here in the 9th century, probably as a defense against the Normans. In 1255 the domain was owned by the Counts of Gelderland and in 1295 a lord of Doornenburg is mentioned for the first time: Willem van Doornick, Gelders Leenman. According to stories Gijsbrecht van Amstel, complicit in the murder of the Dutch count Floris V in 1296, took refuge on the Doornenburg. However, this story has never been confirmed. As far as is known, the castle was never taken by siege. Over the centuries, different families have lived in the castle. In 1936 a textile industrialist bought the lock. The castle was then dilapidated and the textile industrialist decided to have it restored. This restoration was completed in 1941. During the Second World War, the castle served as the German headquarters and in 1945 the castle was bombed twice. All that was left was a great heap of rubble. After the war, the textile industrialist started building the castle again with its foundation. In 1966 the castle was back in its full glory. Kasteel de Doornenburg is a real family castle that is fun for young and old. Take a fascinating tour here, for example.
