The Bergherbos is a hilly forest on a moraine between Doetinchem, Didam and 's-Heerenberg. Due to the high location of this area, you can see the forest emerging on the horizon from a distance. Around the village you will find small church villages, fields and meadows.

Natural beauty in the Bergherbos
This route takes you straight through the Bergherbos. This forest is the habitat of more than 70 different bird species, including the buzzard and the hawk. Deer and badgers are also common animals in this area. The observant plant lover will recognize the swamp and forest violet, the wood anemone, bracken and marsh marigold in this area. You will also explore the beautiful banks of the Rhine along the way. This is one of the longest rivers that makes its way through Europe to the sea. Along the way you can also take a look at Havezate Camphuysen and Huis Aerdt.

The impressive power of the Rhine
The Rhine is 1,233 kilometers long and rises in the Swiss Alps, where two source rivers (the Voor-Rhine and the Achter-Rhine) feed the stream that ultimately flows through the Netherlands. The river plunges from the Rhine Falls, near the Swiss-German border. This is the largest waterfall in Europe: a swirling stream of water 150 meters wide that falls 23 meters into the depths with thunderous violence. From the Gelderland town of Tolkamer you can take a day trip on the impressive Rhine.
