The semi-open bocage landscape of National Landscape Winterswijk is ideal for beautiful cycling trips. Here you can look around you and completely relax. Along the way you will see many characteristic buildings, such as scholten farms and the old Oliemölle.

Old border markers
In Oeding, Germany, you will see, among other things, the neo-Romanesque St. James' Church from 1911. The windows of this church contain striking Art Nouveau elements. Along the Dutch-German border there are still border posts from 1766 made of Bentheimer sandstone. On the Dutch side the Gelderland coat of arms is engraved with the crown and the two lions, on the German side you see a crown with the coat of arms of Münster underneath.

Upper Slinge
South of Winterswijk, the little stream Boven-Slinge meanders through the country. Along the stream you drive through the Knownelle, an old deciduous forest where alder, ash and oak grow. Further on you will pass through the Buskersbos. Along the stream are medlar, bird cherry and ash, higher up grow oaks. In the spring, the soil here is white with wood anemones. At the end of the route you can relax and enjoy a drink and snack at Hotel Café Restaurant"De Lindeboom\\\".

The Oliemölle
On the course of the Boven-Slinge you pass De Oliemölle, a former double watermill. In these old mills, corn was ground and oil was pressed. The history of the mills probably goes back to the fourteenth century. The mills are no longer in use today. Don't worry: the combination of the stream, the bridge and the old mill buildings still provides a beautiful picture that makes you want to get off. Do you want to explore this unparalleled quiet area further? Then also drive route 370826.
