SP11 day trip H
After a good night’s sleep and an excellent breakfast, we are well-prepared for another day of walking. SP11 day trip H, Zwolle – Hattem – Zwolle was today’s round trip.
The landscape on the other side of the IJssel was hilly due to the sand walls pushed up during the Ice Age. The Molecaten estate looked stunning, with frost on the trees. We were again spoiled with beautiful views over the IJssel floodplains
Hattem’s old city wall with gateways was stunning. The area was thoroughly renovated. We ate and drank our coffee and sandwiches on a public bench, the “Markt,” while a watery sun showed itself. Because the ferry didn’t sail, we headed to “De Hanzeboog” bridge again to continue to the station in Zwolle.
While gliding through the winter landscape on the train, we said goodbye to the picturesque Hanseatic cities of Zwolle and Hattem. Even in the gloomy winter months, the Netherlands is beautiful.”
