Authentic hamlets, Saxon farms and a tranquil bocage landscape: cycling around Hardenberg is relaxed.

A mill with a story
The Windlust is a flour mill with a special story. Its predecessor from 1861 burned out completely in 1877 due to a lightning strike. A replacement was bought in Oosterhesselen, thirty kilometers away: a century-old oil mill. It was dismantled and driven to its current location on seven farm wagons. Windlust has been owned by the Ter Voorde-Nijeboer miller family for decades. They still use the mill on a professional basis.

Hardenberg is an old and cozy town. Lovely to drive through. You can see, among other things, the hull of the Haarmolen, a flour mill from 1831 that was dismantled in 1950. In the summer Hardenberg presents itself as'clapper town\\\'. Some activities are then dominated by the valve man, a night watchman who used to go around with a valve and shout what time it was. At the end of your route you can refuel at Holiday Park't Rheezerwold.

Just cross the border
You drive a bit through the German forests in Landkreis Grafschaft Bentheim. Don't be surprised if you hear Dutch in and around the village of Wielen: eighty percent of the inhabitants here are of Dutch descent. In any case, this part of Germany has strong ties with the Netherlands, because the protestant inhabitants are not Lutheran, but Calvinist since the sixteenth century. Partly for this reason, Dutch was also spoken in this area until the end of the nineteenth century. And now again, so that the area lives up to its nickname The Holland of Lower Saxony even more. Do you want to enjoy the beautiful Vechtdal even more? Then also drive route 327972.
