Gerrit Komrij, genius writer and text artist. Loved, praised, but sometimes also feared because of his sharp pen. His cradle was in Winterwijk. In his autobiographical work, he committed memories of the city of his childhood to paper. This cycle route takes you through the Winterswijk of Komrij. Go back in time and try to see the city and its surroundings through the eyes of a growing boy in the fifties. The images shown and the video and sound fragments will help you with this. Welcome to the Winterswijk of memories by Gerrit Komrij.

Nearby tips:
From the 1930s, limestone was mined in abundance in the 3 quarries of Winterswijk. Komrij mentions the quarries several times in his work. One of the quarries is still in operation. The other two are now a protected nature reserve. There are several possibilities to visit the quarry during the open day of Natuurmonumenten or via the geological association. You can find more information about this at the VVV. Are you there in the summer? Then you should not miss a performance in the unique quarry theatre.,
