This versatile route leads through the Liemers, the area west of the Oude IJssel. Along the way you will visit historical sights and get acquainted with the delicious wines that this region produces. The last part of the route leads through the beautiful wooded area of Montferland. The largest part of the De Liemers area consists of a river plain from the last Ice Age. It is an area with extensive fields and meadows, interspersed with small forest complexes. The fertile land consists largely of river clay. For good quality wines you don't have to go to Southern Europe, South Africa or South America. You simply cycle past the vineyards of Eastern Netherlands to taste all the good that this region has to offer in the field of wine. This cycle route takes you past Wijngaard Bergherbos, Wijngoed't Oerlegoed and Wijngoed Avitera. Be surprised and pampered by delicious grape juice from Dutch soil. The Volharding mill, dating from 1891, is located in the heart of Zeddam. The white stone belt mill operated on wind power until 1941, after which it fell out of operation. The mill was restored in 1979. Grain is now milled and sold on a voluntary basis and you can visit the mill when the sails are turning and on Sundays. The imposing Huis Bergh Castle is one of the largest castles in the Netherlands. Construction started in 1250. Parts of the house date from the 14th, 15th and 17th centuries. There are guided tours of the castle and the art collection includes early Italian painting, works from the school of Hieronymus Bosch and medieval manuscripts. You can also get married there and spend the night in luxurious suites in the two defensive towers on the outer bailey. The last part of your route takes you through the hilly Montferland forest area. This moraine complex originated in the Ice Age. You will find a number of wooded hills, of which Hettenheuvel is the highest at 91.6 meters. For the cyclist it is sometimes necessary to pedal hard, and then zoom down the hill again in a relaxed way.
