Cycle route around Lutterzand
De Lutte, Denekamp
Lutterzand originated in the late Middle Ages. Due to overgrazing and the cutting of heather sods, bare spots arose in the vegetation. The wind was given free reign, causing sand drifts to appear. In order to prevent this, Scots pines were planted. The oldest and lowest sand layers on the banks of the Dinkel are up to twenty centuries old. The darker layers are a good indicator of former heathland fires. With 340 hectares, the Meuleman country estate makes up the largest part of the nature reserve. The estate, owned by the Twente textile family Scholten, is freely accessible to a large extent.
