With this route you will experience a beautiful day in the IJsselvallei. You pass through some historic towns, such as picturesque Zutphen. You can also fully enjoy the natural beauty along the IJssel.

Beautiful Brummen

First you come through the beautiful Voorst. Just after Empe you drive on a leafy road. You will see a small lake on your left: it is a remnant of the Oude IJssel. In picturesque Brummen you cycle past the fifteenth-century Sint-Pancratius Church. From the bridge over the IJssel you have a beautiful view over the floodplains.

Tower City Zutphen
Take a moment to enjoy the historic atmosphere in Zutphen. This Hanseatic town still has one of the best-preserved old town centers in the Netherlands! In the outlying area you pass the Molen Geertruida Cornelia, a flour mill from 1893. A little later you cycle along the Ravenswaarden. This unique nature reserve near the IJssel is one of the best-preserved Dutch winding values. You will also find plenty of natural beauty and tranquility on the other bank of the IJssel.

Molen Geertruida Cornelia

Geertruida Cornelia
7213LM Lochem

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.
