This walking route takes you through Dalfsen and the surrounding area. A wonderful walking route that leads you through the idyllic Overijsselse Vechtdal. You will also pass the archaeological site where the Schat van 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 quiet and unspoilt here. You look out over the rippling water and the grass and reed lands along the banks. A wonderful moment to relax completely.

Picturesque Dalfsen
On foot you can discover the beauty of Dalfsen at your leisure. This beautiful town has never been granted city rights because of the nearby Rechteren Castle. At 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 Schat van Dalfsen. At the beginning of 2015, a 3000-year-old road and a cemetery from the Stone Age (about 2900 BC!) were found here. The grave field measures 120 by 20 metres, possibly the largest found grave field of hunebed builders in Northwestern Europe. Many funnel beakers have been found in the graves. The discovery did not stop there. Because several Merovingian burial pits from the fifth or sixth century were also found on the site. Jewelery and golden swords were found in this early medieval royal tomb. Would you like to walk through Dalfsen and the surrounding area again? Then also walk route 334650.
