Description

From Vroomshoop you can make a wonderfully varied route through the Twente-German border area. You drive through picturesque villages, the former Twente peat area and through the famous Twente bocage landscape.

Twente textile industry
The first part of the route takes you through the wide landscape around Geerdijk, Beerzerveld and Bergentheim. From the middle of the nineteenth century, the high moor was reclaimed here, because the Twente textile industry needed peat as a cheap fuel. In Germany you also drive through former peat bogs. It is wonderfully quiet cycling here. Occasionally you drive through a small forest plot, so that you have some cooling on hot days.

Twenty pace
How different is the landscape when you cross the border again at the Mandercircles. Here you cycle through the famous Twente coulisse landscape of rolling fields, bushes and fields bordered by wooded banks. The slower you drive, the longer you can enjoy the invigorating tranquility of Twente. Just before Geesteren you will pass the Grote Geesterse Molen, a flour mill from 1867. At the Oosteinde in Vriezenveen you will see some beautiful monumental farms. The route ends at Brasserie Restaurant"De Aanleg\\\".

Jannink's Bra
Just past Getelo, at the border with Germany, you pass the largest landscape art project in the Netherlands: the Mandercircles. Get off if you want to look at these two special fields. They were constructed in the 1930s by textile manufacturer Jannink and are therefore also referred to as the Circles of Jannink. According to Jannink, farmers were better able to work a round plot because they did not have to turn their machine around. Instead of crops, you will now find a unique art project. A two kilometer long walking path takes you over the circles that form a beacon from the sky. And by pilots jokingly called the'Bra van Jannink\\\'.
