The starting point for a great many walking and cycle routes, the new Posbank park & ride is definitely worth a visit too. The Vereniging Natuurmonumenten (association protecting nature reserves) displays its exhibition in a giant “tree”.

Each village its own unique charm
The villages of Rozendaal, Velp, Rheden, De Steeg, Ellecom, Dieren, Spankeren, Laagsoeren, Brummen and Eerbeek are unique, each with its own charm. They boast an abundance of sights, including Midachten country estate, Rozendaal Castle and the Gelders Geological Museum. For a fun day out with the kids, visit De Spelerij/De Uitvinderij, Brugkabouter or the TV Toys Museum. They will have the time of their lives here. And how about taking the steam train from Dieren to Apeldoorn or taking part in activities such as “Down Hill Steppen” (Down Hill by Scooter) at the VVV Tourist Centre in Rheden? The Art route is highly recommended. In addition to all of the above you can visit a range of events such as the sheep shearing festivities, the Velp Thursdays and the famous Rheden Four Day Cycling Event.
