Via the picturesque village of Ven-Zelderheide you continue cycling along the beautiful Reichswald. This forest is one of the largest nature reserves in the Niederrhein and in the Middle Ages it was a popular hunting ground for imperial visitors to the Nijmegen Valkhof and the dukes of Guelders and Cleves. The permanent inhabitants of this forest area are roe deer, red deer and wild boar.
