Military personnel and the Veluwe have been inseparable for at least one hundred and fifty years. Go back in time and cycle along the places that remind you of the military on the Veluwe.

Cycle along the seven barracks of Ede and follow the trail of the Second World War via Ede and Arnhem. You will also come across the location where hundreds of paratroopers landed on the Ginkelse Heide and fought hard to free the Netherlands during the Second World War.

The length of this route is approximately 63 kilometres. If the route is too long or too short for your liking, it can easily be changed. Each junction has a map on the information panel, and you can easily adapt your route.

TIP: This route can also be downloaded as a Heritage Route, which will give you additional information about places of interest along the way.
