Your cycling route starts at Landgoed Schovenhorst, which was founded in 1848. From the outset, this estate has been extensively experimented with with various tree species, so that you can admire some special monumental specimens. You can also buy an entrance ticket for the Bostoren here. This tower offers you a beautiful view of the surroundings. This route of Exciting History introduces you to the eventful past of the northern Veluwerand. Until the construction of the Zuiderzeestraatweg in the 19th century, the transition area from wet to dry soils was difficult to reach by land. Countless generations fought the capricious Zuiderzee here.
