Description

This tour takes you through the Achterhoek bocage landscape around Winterswijk, a region that has been named a Valuable Cultural Landscape. The semi-open landscape is graced by small plots and large ash trees. You cycle through bushes, avenues and hedgerows and along meandering streams in narrow valleys. Beautiful, old farms and small hamlets are scattered across the country. Typical for this region are the so-called scholtehoeves: the former residences of the influential scholte farmers. Your ride starts at the Hilgelo recreation area. The area is part of National Landscape Winterswijk, an area of almost 22,000 hectares in total. It is used for many outdoor and water sports. At Meddo you cycle past the Molen van Sellink (hull/remainder). This stone belt mill was built in 1873, but burned down in 1933. Only the stone hull can still be seen, and it is now used as a storage area.'t Walien is a former manor near Winterswijk. The name Waly or Walyen appears for the first time in documents from 1340. In the early 19th century it consisted of a rectangular white-plastered manor house, canals, gardens, orchards and a number of farmyards. After a renovation in 1905, Huize Walien was known as a stately, white-plastered mansion, with a wide sidewalk and a large platform at the front. The front of the house was graced by a tower clock with a bell-dome. The house burned down completely in a fire in 1908. All that remains is part of the west wall with eight coats of arms, part of the moat and some outbuildings.
