Motor tour along Dutch and German mills

Start Geesteren
End Radewijk

This route through the Netherlands and Germany can be driven by motorbike or by car. The route starts at the Grote Geesterse Molen and takes you to Mander, where you can visit water mill Bels and water mill Frans. In Mander you can stop for a drink whilst enjoying the scenic surroundingsand. Via Lattrop and Tilligte with two stops at the Oortmanmolen and the Westerveld Möl the route goes to Lage. The Mill of Lage – a water mill – is located in Germany, but belongs to the Twickel estate in Twente. The route then takes you along the Windmill Uelsen. This is built from Bentheim sandstone, like more mills in the area.

A series of beautiful winding roads will take you to Wilsum in Germany. It is worth taking a moment to get off to see the beautifully situated water mill there. Via the Wielerberg you drive back into the Netherlands on your way to windmill and bakery Windlust in Radewijk. We stop at the towns Holthone and Anerveen, and you can, if you still feel like it, insert a stop at De Anermolen in Ane. The route ends in Hardenberg. Those who don’t need to go home immediately, can find a spot to have a drink.
