De Sprengenberg (The Sprengenhill) - Haarle
The Sprengenberg is a beautiful hilly nature reserve in the Salland region. You can enjoy hiking here and enjoy what nature has to offer in all seasons. Beautiful flowering rhododendrons in spring, swaying fields in summer, purple moors in August and when there is snow in winter it is a true winter wonderland. On top of the Sprengenberg is the striking Palatine Tower, part of the house that was built in the years 1898-1910 on behalf of A.A.W. van Wulfften Palthe. The building was intended as a hunting and holiday home, but Palthe eventually went to live there himself with his wife. Palthe had the house fitted with the latest techniques and in the end the country house was completely self-sufficient. The house is not open to the public.
