Your route starts at Restaurant de Luchte. From here you walk to Leuvenheim, for a discovery of special historical places on the edge of the Veluwezoom. At the back of the picture you will discover Huis De Rees, a stately building that dates back to 1833. As early as 1642, a defensible manor house, a fief of the Duchy of Gelre, complete with a moat and a gate tower with drawbridge. You walk back via De Geldersche Toren, a large round tower. This is mentioned as early as 1535 in a piece by the Duke Karel van Gelre, Count of Zutphen, about the new construction of the tower. It can be concluded from the text that there was even a tower before that, but it is not known from which year it dates.

The current building dates from 1833. However, its origins are much older, in 1642 it became a fief of the Duchy of Gelre. According to prints, the building was then a defensible manor with a moat and a gate tower with a drawbridge. De Rees was, and is now again, in use as a retreat center.
