    The twentieth stage of the Maarten van Rossumpad starts in Ommen. Or well, the route actually starts at Landgoed Het Laer and ignores Ommen. If you feel like a walk through a beautiful historic town that already received city rights in 1248, then I recommend a detour through Ommen. You do this by walking left after the bridge over the Overijsselse Vecht into the old trading town on the Vecht.Afterwards you walk through the farmlands in the area and follow the course of the Vecht. In addition to farmland, this stage also takes you through forests and over heath.If you hike in the summer, you will also see many dragonflies and butterflies along the way. A special butterfly is the small Icarus blue, which lives in the grasslands and can be recognized by its bright blue color. The last part of today's stage runs through the forest, and you end near Balkbrug.
