Description

This route takes you through an ash landscape with old wooded banks and lovely water streams around Borculo. Be enchanted by this lovely small-scale landscape with cute vistas during your bike ride. You are very welcome in Berkelland.

Through Ruurlo to Borculo
Beltrum is the starting point of this route. From here you cycle through the Gelderland bocage landscape to Ruurlo. That cozy place once consisted of a vast swamp area, but you can't see anything of that anymore. Just before you enter the town you pass Ruurlo Castle. This country estate was already mentioned in documents in 1326. Part of the medieval wall of the castle can still be found in the cellar and almost the entire left side of the castle was built in the sixteenth century. The tower at the back of the castle dates from the 17th century and other parts of the castle were built in the 19th century. A little further on you can take a look at the Oliemölle/Stone Table in Borculo.

The Olliemölle
The Oliemölle/Stone table is an underlay watermill that consists of two parts on different banks. On one bank is a flour and hulling mill and on the other bank a former oil mill that was converted into a flour mill in 1920. The current watermill has its origins in the eighteenth century.
