Description

Want to enjoy a nice day out in an environment where you will find almost no habitation? Then walk this route on and around the Herikerberg near Markelo in Twente.

Herikerberg
The Herikerberg is a hill almost 47 meters high. From the top, but also from the flanks, you sometimes have beautiful views of the Twente bocage landscape and the surrounding villages. The route leads you through a beautiful mosaic of sometimes ancient forests, meadows and fields. You can walk here at your leisure and occasionally grab a bench for a break or picnic. Or to enjoy the silence for a while.

burial mounds
While walking you will see a monumental, former watchtower from 1890 in this area. This was built by order of Count Bentinck, the then resident of the castle Weldam, which is kilometers away. The tower now houses a home and studio. There are also a few prehistoric burial mounds in this nature reserve.
