Historic Groenlo
Via the German border, which runs straight through the village of Zwilbroek, you arrive at the rugged nature of the Zwillbrocker Venn. You cycle through the scenic landscape to Groenlo, a fortified town with an eventful history. During the Eighty Years' War, Groenlo was besieged several times and the town also came under fire during the Dutch War in 1672. Most of the fortifications were demolished, but the bastions, moats and cannons can still be seen.

Glory Borculo
