The beautiful east of Holland with a private guide
A tour in the beautiful east on Van Gogh and the medieval city of Deventer
The middle of The Netherlands is formed in the Ice Age of 150,000 years ago. The remainder of a side moraine now form what we call “Dutch Mountains” or “The Veluwe Massif”…..you can tell we are proud of these 80 meter high elevations by the name we use for them. It is part of the beautiful east of The Netherlands and this area forms the biggest National Park of The Netherlands where you can ride a bike through forests and across heather fields.
Located in the park is the “Kröller-Müller Museum” that has a wonderful collection of Van Gogh paintings, paintings of other artists, modern art and a garden with a big collection of sculptures.
This is our morning program and we will have a Dutch Home Made Lunch including Dutch cheeses and Dutch wine somewhere in the field (weather permitting).
After handing over our bikes we go to the city of Deventer. Deventer is one of the oldest cities in The Netherlands and is beautifully restored. It has the oldest stone house and the most beautiful market place of The Netherlands. No wonder that lonely planet added it in their travel guide!
The city also used to be the refuge city for the Bishop of Utrecht and for that reason had a “Latin School”. Students were for example the philosopher Erasmus and Gerard Groote (Gerhard Groet/Gerardus Magnus) who was founder of the Modern Devotion movement (Devotia Moderna).
A beautiful, interesting city but cosy and tranquil with wonderful views and nice shopping streets.
