In the outskirts of Renswoude you will find a surprising amount of cultural history. In the middle of the polder are several forts of the Grebbelinie. And on the edge of the village you walk across the estate of Kasteel Renswoude.

The Schalm
The route starts at Fort aan de Buursteeg from 1786. From here you walk to the nearby Linie van de Juffrouwwijk, a defense structure from the eighteenth century. The main post of this line has been intersected since 1843 by the Arnhem-Utrecht railway line. There are some casemates from the Second World War. You can walk a bit along the Munnikenbeek between the grasslands, small woods and fields. On the edge of Renswoude you will pass two war memorials.

Grand Canal
Around Renswoude Castle you walk through an idyllic environment of old farms, hedgerows and lowland streams. The castle dates back to 1350. You can take a look at the front and daydream. In the castle forest you pass three monumental Italian benches from 1900 at a three-fork. Then you walk a bit over the leafy Grebbelinie. On the left lies Gelderland, on the right the province of Utrecht. At Restaurant Grebbelounge you can enjoy something delicious.
