Description

This walking route takes you through Dalfsen and the surrounding area. A wonderful walking route that leads you through the idyllic Overijssel Vechtdal. You will also pass the archaeological site where the Treasure of Dalfsen was found in 2015.

Charge the battery
In the outskirts of Dalfsen you will pass some beautiful characteristic farms. You also walk a bit through the Vechtdal. Time seems to have stood still along this river, it is so peaceful and unspoilt here. You look out over the rippling water and the grass and reedlands along the banks. A wonderful moment to completely relax.

Picturesque Dalfsen
You can discover the beauty of Dalfsen at your leisure on foot. This beautiful town never received city rights because of the nearby Castle of Rechteren. On the Kerkplein you can see the beautiful Reformed Church that dates from 1455. In de Grutte Moole, a shop at Prinsenstraat 35, is also a national monument. The eighteenth-century building has traditionally been a horse mill where grits were ground. Your beautiful route will have a suitable ending at Restaurant and hotel De Barones.

Dalfsen's treasure
While walking you walk past the site of the Treasure of Dalfsen. At the beginning of 2015, a 3000-year-old road and a burial field from the Stone Age (about 2900 BC!) were found here. The burial field measures 120 by 20 metres, possibly the largest burial field found by hunebed builders in northwestern Europe. Many funnel beakers have been found in the graves. The find didn't stop there. Because several Merovingian burial pits from the fifth or sixth century were also found on the site. This early medieval royal tomb contained jewelry and golden swords.
