Walking along the water
The starting point of this route is Lochem station, which is located in the north of the village. You walk about 7 kilometers along the Twente Canal, on the way to Diepenheim. At Café - Restaurant De Viersprong you can enjoy delicious coffee with apple pie, lunch or dinner. From here you walk further to Diepenheim.

Highlights: Historic Castles
During this route you don't have to worry about encountering things. Along the way you walk past no fewer than five sights that are all worth seeing. The first is Havezate Westerflier, an old mansion from 1729. The estate around it consists of an alternation of forest, pasture and arable land. Then you pass Kasteel Huis te Diepenheim, which was built in 1648. The estate is freely accessible to walkers. After you have walked along Pekkedam, you will arrive at Kasteel Nijenhuis. The character of this Nijenhuis estate is park-like with romantic walking paths and picturesque vistas. The last stop of the sights is Kasteel Weldam, a centuries-old estate in the wooded area of Twente. Via Markelo you walk on to Goor.
