Versailles of the Achterhoek
After about five kilometers of walking you will pass the first point of interest, namely Huis de Voorst. Huis de Voorst was built around 1700 by order of Arnold Joost van Keppel, who had made a fortune at the court of Stadtholder William III. Because of its resemblance to the palace of Willem III, De Voorst was nicknamed'Het Kleine Loo\\\' and the lush gardens earned it the honorary title'Versailles van de Achterhoek\\\'. After you have visited Huis de Voorst, you continue the route in an easterly direction. You cross the Diversion Canal and then you actually follow it all the way to the Daughternseweg, meandering through the beautiful outdoor environment between Zutphen and Lochem.
