The Veluwezoom is known for'Gelders Arcadia\\\', the landscape of extensive estates, country estates and castles. For example, you will find Huis Zypendaal, Castle Doorwerth and Villa Sanoer here.
The hilly landscape has always attracted wealthy families, who built their country houses and the most beautiful gardens and parks. With the arrival of the train connections in the 19th century, more and more wealthy Westerners came to the estate zone on the Veluwezoom to enjoy this unique landscape and to build their'outdoors\\\'. And we can still enjoy those many outdoor areas in this area!
This route leads you through the western part of this region, where you cycle through the municipality of Wageningen, the municipality of Renkum and the municipality of Arnhem. This is a beautiful area located between De Hoge Veluwe National Park on the north side and the River Rhine on the south side.
The location provides a particularly varied landscape and many beautiful panoramas during the cycling route. Along the way you will pass various castles and estates such as Doorwerth Castle in Doorwerth, Villa Sanoer in Wageningen and Huis Zypendaal in Arnhem. Part of Villa Sanoer and the surrounding garden can only be visited by appointment.
The impressive Doorwerth Castle was completely destroyed during the Second World War and left as a ruin. After a renovation of almost 40 years, the castle with outer bailey has been restored to its former glory since the mid-1980s and can be visited all year round. Huis Zypendaal is open to visitors on all Sundays during the summer months. The interior of this country house from the 18th century largely originates from that time.
For all information about the castles and estates, download the Gelders Arcadia app. This app is full of videos, photos, routes and stories that you can view at home or on location. In this way, the often rich history of the locations of the Gelders Arcadia really comes to life.
