When you arrive in's-Heerenbroek after about 10 kilometers, it is time for the first stop at Theehuis Zalkerveer. Take a break and enjoy a cup of coffee, tea and possibly a nice lunch. Theehuis Zalkerveer is located in the most dangerous bend on the IJssel, namely at the place where the river makes a turn of more than ninety degrees.
