Description

Cycle along the German border. The outskirts of Winterswijk is a beautiful part of the Netherlands that consists of a historic landscape with beautiful forests, heathland, hedgerows, streams, heathland and raised moors. The Winterswijk National Landscape is about 22,000 hectares and mainly consists of beautiful semi-open areas with alternating small plots and large ash trees. Here and there you see some bushes, avenues or wooded banks and very occasionally you even come across some raised moors. Especially the large open quarry is special and has a foreign feel. Geological deposits from the Tertiary period have been found here relatively close to the surface. The geological layers are highly visible, allowing a quick glimpse into a past rich in fossils and minerals dating back hundreds of millions of years. Knownelle (or Bekkendelle) is an old swamp forest with deciduous trees, near the hamlet of Wold where the Boven-Slinge meanders. It is part of a larger woodland area bordering meandering streams. This is a favorite habitat of the kingfisher, the great yellow wagtail and breeding ground for the rare middle spotted woodpecker. Knownelle is part of Natura 2000, a network of protected natural areas in Europe.
