Varied cycle route around Heerde
Heerde, Epe, Wapenveld
Woods, heathland, rivers, villages and, with a bit of luck, a flock of sheep. You can encounter it all during this cycle route. Heerde and its nearby villages is surrounded by beautiful varied nature.
Just the village of Wapenveld for example: here you can see the floodplains of the IJssel on one side and the moors of the Veluwe on the other. The lovely village has been the scene of battles quite often. During the 80-year war, it was plundered by nobles and Beggars, and again by the French during the French occupation, until the Cossacks came to liberate them. A memorial tree was planted on the spot where, according to legend, Napoleon's horse is buried.
Enjoy all the beauty this region has to offer. Along the way, you will pass nice places to stop and take in the scenery even better.
