    The castle is very idyllic. Although it is a mix of styles from a wide range of building eras, it nevertheless gives a closed impression, especially with the surrounding old buildings.

    A very beautiful moated castle that you can quickly pass. But once you have discovered them, you cannot go in because they are unfortunately privately owned.

    A great farmhouse. Attention the visit is not allowed. Everything private. If you ask nicely, you also get an exception.

    A great privately owned, well-preserved moated castle hidden on the side of the path.

    Although the Kasteel is not open to the public, it is worth visiting.
    It was first documented in 1380 and consists of various architectural styles. The surrounding avenues and not least the nearby Römerweg are a real bike highlight.
