History and craft go hand in hand in the Veluwe. This route takes you to a beer brewery on Landgoed Staverden.

As you drive through the trees, you immediately notice that you are leaving the everyday routine behind. You will soon pass through the Beekhuizerzand, a slightly sloping drifting sand area. Especially on sunny days, the parched, almost gold-colored sandy landscape seems to be on another planet. You can enjoy the views on the Elspeetse Heide.

Staverden estate
On the edge of Elspeet you pass some beautiful thatched farmhouses. You will also pass an authentic sheepfold. Landgoed Staverden is an idyllic spot where you will find a castle and some farms. Stop here to visit De Uddelaer Brewery, which is highly recommended. At the Ermelosche Heide Visitor Center you can learn more about the heathland and the large flock of sheep that graze the heathland.

Landgoed Staverden

Kasteel Staverden
3852NV Ermelo

The first castle on this site was built around the year 1300 by Count Reinald I of Gelre. He wanted to develop the estate and the area around it into a city, but that did not work for a long time. In 2012, Staverden was eventually named the smallest city in the Benelux with just over 50 inhabitants. The current castle dates partly from 1853 and partly from 1905. It is built on the foundations of the previous castle from the 18th century. In total there have been four different castles on this place. It is not possible to view the castle from the inside, but the estate itself is freely accessible to stroll over.
