    The fourteenth stage of the Pieterpad starts at Castle Vorden. Besides being a beautiful country house and particularly photogenic, Vorden Castle is also an important place for the Pieterpad. In 1983 the Pieterpad was officially opened at this location.The bronze plaque at the estate is a reminder of this. The Pieterpad was conceived and developed between 1978 and 1980 by two elderly ladies, Toos Goorhuis-Tjalsma and Bertje Jens. Prints of the walking shoes of both ladies have been immortalized in the bronze artwork. There is no better way to honor the creators of this iconic long-distance trail!Vorden Castle is not the only estate in this area. There are a total of eight castles around Vorden. By the way, don't be fooled and don't expect knights, moats and drawbridges. Here, "castle" is simply the name for a large country house.Most of the route you walk through rural areas, although it is occasionally interspersed with trees. After Landgoed en Huis 't Zelle you walk into the vast forest of Landgoed' t Zand. Once you have left the forest, it is not far anymore. Another piece of farmland before you end today's stage in Zelhem.
