Two beautiful old towns in one route! Deventer and Zutphen are a picture. They are connected by the mighty IJssel.

Historic Deventer
The route starts in Deventer, a beautiful gem on the IJssel. The old center enjoys a protected cityscape. You will see many monumental buildings that remind you of times gone by. At the tree-lined Brink you can see De Waag, a beautiful museum from 1531. At the Grote Kerkhof you can see the old town hall and the Lebuïnuskerk. Further on, below Gorssel, you pass the Molen Geertruida Cornelia, a flour mill from 1893.

Hanseatic city of Zutphen
You follow the IJssel all the way to Zutphen. Take some time here to enjoy the historic atmosphere: this Hanseatic town still has one of the best-preserved old town centers in the Netherlands! You will cycle back along the IJssel, a mighty river that brought wealth to the Hanseatic cities.

This ground sailor dates from the end of the 19th century. The permit to build this mill was applied for in 1893, but the mill was not completed until 1895. This was because the applicant for the permit had died in the meantime. In 1896, a machine grinder was installed next to the mill. In 1935 the mill came to a standstill because a rod was broken. Both rods were then removed and the machine mill took over all the work of the mill until 1972. In this year the mill broke and therefore nothing was ground at all in the mill complex. From 1998 the mill and the accompanying miller's house were restored on a large scale. First the masonry and foundation were tackled, then the beams were replaced and the floors renewed, new crawling posts were dug in and new grass was sown and even the paving around the mill was renewed. The opening of the new mill took place on 1 July 2000.
