Sunday, March 6, 2022 by Brigitte NotteBeautiful walk. Although we followed the hexagonal signs described on the site of westtoer. This one is 9.5 km and tremendously beautiful. Through the forest, plank paths, heath. At the castle at the start a beautiful garden, a herb garden. End of the walk super nice tavern with terrace and nice view to eat or drink something. Easy parking.
