In the triangle between the Vecht and the IJssel and under Zwolle you will find plenty of space and tranquility. You will pass picturesque villages, estates, forests and heather. You are on the border of the IJsseldal and the Vechtdal. As early as the Middle Ages, various waterways (canals) were dug in this area against the wetness of the land between the rivers.
In Laag Zuthem you cycle a few kilometers on the Nieuwe Wetering. In the spring the banks bloom and the ducklings float on the calm water. A wonderful view from the bike. Laag Zuthem is tiny, cozy and has beautiful historic farms. For more fun on the water you have to go to the Wythmenerplas. The recreational lake is located on the main road from Zwolle to Raalte. Clear water, demarcated swimming areas, an extensive sandy beach and green sunbathing areas invite you for a day of water fun. So if you hit a hot day and fancy a swim, put some swimwear in your bag.
Via the town with the exciting name Mataram you cycle towards De Vecht. Mataram estate owes its name to its first owner, JM van Rhijn, former resident at the court of the sultan of Mataram. He named the country estate he bought after the country of Mataram in the former Dutch East Indies. You can enjoy a walk on the estate.
You just touch the Vecht opposite Dalfsen. This side branch of the IJssel winds its way through the beautiful landscape. On this side of the river valley of the Vecht, in the hamlet of Millingen, lies the special Edelmans house Den Berg from the beginning of the eighteenth century. It is a so-called manor, a fortified farmhouse, formerly inhabited by nobles.
You will find many estates with manors in this region. They give the landscape an old stateliness that makes you sit upright on your bike. The halls of beautiful country houses can often be rented for parties and parties 'at stand'. & Nbsp;
The Den Alerdinck country estate is another beautiful example of a chic manor. The entire site consists of a castle with a 3 km moat, coach house, farms, orchard, farmlands, gardens and woods. Private or business you can enjoy the atmosphere, luxury and grandeur of yesteryear in complete privacy.
De Alerdinck is connected to the Colckhof estate and is located south of Laag Zuthem.
