The village of Varsseveld has only six thousand inhabitants. This place was probably inhabited very early; In the area, finds of reindeer hunters and settlements that traded with the Romans in Roman times were made. The name Wazovelde, the original name of Varsseveld, already appeared in a deed from 823. The Varsseveldse kopps form a small-scale covering sand relief; small mounds rise 1 to 5 meters above the surrounding area. You will see meadows alternately and in lower areas, while fields lie on the tops and deciduous and coniferous forests interrupt the landscape. You follow the Oude IJssel for a while, which used to be called the Salle. Iron foundries quickly sprang up along the river at that time, because there was a lot of iron in the ground. Furthermore, the river was a perfect way to transport the raw or smelted ore. The blast furnaces in IJmuiden are the heritage of the iron foundries that once dominated this riverbank. Eetcafe de Holle Bus is the ideal base for a cycling tour. When you return from your bike ride you can have a bite to eat in the restaurant or on the terrace.
