Description

Start:
  • Campsite turn right until the first intersection
  • turn left (Oude Larenseweg) towards KP 28

To the south of Deventer, sandwiched between the schipbeek and the Dortherbeek, is the Oxerhof estate . This estate was already mentioned in the 16th century as the country seat of the Duke of Guelders. During the Second World War, the Germans occupied the building and used it as a camp for political prisoners.
In the outskirts of Gorssel you drive through a mosaic of forests, small-scale landscapes and flowery fields and fields. It is wonderful to make miles here in this quiet region. You will see the Noorsche Huis on the Molenweg. This building was bought in Norway in 1913 as a kit. In Gorssel itself you can visit Museum MORE, which is dedicated to modern realistic art from the Netherlands. Lock Eefde is a lock complex. The complex is located in the Twente Canal and is a national monument from 1933. The lock at Eefde is the connection for shipping between the IJssel and the Twente Canal and is also used for water management in the east of the Netherlands. Huis de Voorst is located at KP 43 - a stately 17th-century house in a beautifully varied landscape. You can get married in the house. The house burned down almost completely in 1943. It has been restored in the old style, but the interior could not be restored. There is a special garden behind the house.

From KP 38 you cycle along the Gorsselse Heide , a former military training and shooting area. The Gorsselse Heide is a beautiful wet heathland area with a special flora and fauna and has the potential to become the natural pearl of the Achterhoek.
