After a comfortable overnight stay at Hotel and Restaurant Hof van Gelre, you can drive straight into the countryside. It is wonderfully peaceful here to cycle on car-free roads. You will soon pass Gelselaar, a charming village that enjoys a protected townscape. Further on, you can get off at Kasteeltuin Warmelo: a breathtaking environment where four centuries of garden architecture meet. On the outskirts of Diepenheim you can take a look at Pekkedam, a beautiful villa. Castle Nijenhuis is private property, but the estate of almost 200 hectares is open. The estate around Weldam Castle is also free to visit. Between Goor and Markelo you drive through the woods on the Herikerberg. What a silence! Finally, you drive over the estate where the Ampsen House is located.

Kasteel Nijenhuis

The Nijenhuis (approximately 200 hectares) is located to the east of Diepenheim. The central part of the current house dates from 1662. In the 19th and early 20th century it was expanded with a total of four towers. The house is the core of an intact country estate. The character of the Nijenhuis estate is park-like: romantic footpaths along the Molenbeek, monumental tree groups and picturesque vistas determine the image.

Kasteel Weldam

7475MJ Hof van Twente

Around the start of the Eighty Years' War, the rectangular rear part of the house that still exists today was built on a square moated site. Not much is known about the building that must have stood before it.

Huis Ampsen

Kasteel Ampsen

The history of this stately castle dates back to 1105. The first castle and both houses on the estate were destroyed in 1605 by the Spaniards. The current house was rebuilt in the first half of the seventeenth century. The castle and the estate are privately owned and therefore not accessible.
