LAW12, Overijssels Havezatenpad: Oldenzaal - Steenwijk, 272 km
Theme of this path is the "Havezathe", old estates. Overijssel has quite a few of them, and many of these old and sometimes castle like buildings have been preserved, including their surrounding gardens and parks. This path visits many of them, and does of course call upon the many old towns in between. A pleasant stroll for lovers of coffee with apple pie. Well, a beer is alright too.
Because the path crosses the entire province of Overijssel (the old name of the path was Overijsselpad), starting on the Frisian border and ending almost at the German border, you will pass the best woods and wetlands of this region. This will most likely tempt the nature lover and silence lover to join you.
The walk is plotted by the Stichting Wandelnet. The path is marked white-red in the field. Of course, there is a nice little guidebook available, with savory details of everything aroundyou, which you can study while enjoying your beer.
