In the Reestdal you can walk carefree through nature and villages. This route takes you through picturesque hamlets and past De Star, an old windmill with a story.

The Haarden
After a drink and snack at Brasserie De Boerderij you immediately walk into the Haardennen, a nature reserve consisting of heaths and old drifting hills covered with coniferous and deciduous trees. It is wonderful to walk here in the silence. A little later you walk into the beautiful village of Balkbrug. This village owes its name to a beam that lay here under a bridge over the Dedemsvaart.

The Rest
Just past the hamlet of Den Kaat, you cross the Reest. This winding river forms the border between Overijssel and Drenthe over a few tens of kilometers. You walk here through a small-scale landscape with eye-catching nature. A little further on you will pass through Den Huizen, an old but very beautiful hamlet consisting of four characteristic farms. At Brasserie & Camping Si-Es-An you can also enjoy the tranquility of the Reestdal.

Mill the Star
Just outside the built-up area of Balkbrug you walk past De Star, a corn mill from 1848. In 1882 the mill was struck by lightning and it largely burned down. The mill was restored in the same year, using parts of an old mill from Deventer. Until 1974, the mill stood on the Dedemsvaart canal. A punt could sail into the mill to unload the grain. In 1975 the mill was moved 500 meters to its current location.
