In 1782 an old inn was built in this area and it is to this inn that the area owes its name. There were several explanations why it is so called. The name would come from the fact that it was an old wooden hut made of planks or to a gambeson (a gambeson is a wooden garment you can't move in). Another explanation is that it would be a euphemism for a coffin. The most likely explanation is that the common word 'gambeson' is derived from the garment, but here it stands for a simple structure. The name of the inn later became the name for the whole area. Today's history lesson doesn't stop here, during this route you'll come across two old folk tales. The saga of Johan van Otterloo and the story of De Wodanseik come from this region.
