Afterwards we will take you on an interesting tour and of course serve a delicious chocolate creation. (Surcharge € 11 p.p.; bookable from 10 persons).

Across the green border

Strengthened by a rich breakfast buffet, you cycle today through the varied landscape of the Dutch Achterhoek. Your first destination is the charming border town of Winterswijk, where you can take a leisurely stroll through the lake fish and market (Wednesday and Saturday).

The tour continues via typical Dutch pättkes to Lievelde. In the privately run open-air museum "Erve Kots" you will learn how people and animals lived in one room, why the groom carries his bride over the threshold and how a horse oil mill works. The "Loss Hus", the former estate and countless interesting everyday objects fascinate young and old here.

Reservations have already been made for you in the nationally renowned pancake restaurant . We serve pancakes of your choice, "Pilleweggen" and a "Kumme" coffee. A visit to the estate cheese dairy opposite is not only a treat for the palate. Delicious samples from nettle to sage cheese, as well as many curiosities in the lovingly designed rooms make this tour an experience. The eventful day ends with a cosy dinner at the hotel (half board included).

Hiking on the Kommiesenpatt

Sated from the rich breakfast and equipped with a packed lunch, you will lace up your hiking boots today. You will hike along former customs officers' and smugglers' paths along the border stones that have marked the border since 1765 and thus one of the oldest border routes in Europe. The total length of the Kommiesenpatts is 17.9 km. Depending on your wishes and physical condition, four different circular hiking trails of 4.8 km - 12.8 km in length are designated.
