Cycling through Hengelo and the green surroundings

From City Hotel Hengelo you first cycle through the beautiful old heart of Hengelo. Like Enschede, Hengelo emerged thanks to the textile industry in the nineteenth century. There are some beautiful old buildings to admire here, such as the old St. Lambert's Basilica. Further on you will pass Techniekmuseum Heim, a nice starter. You will also pass through Tuindorp 't Lansink, a beautiful old neighborhood with a protected face. So much fun and then you are not even out of Hengelo!

Walking with your dog

You can relax in the Twente landscape. You start at Café Sprakel in Lonneker (12 km from the hotel). You walk along the Lonnekermolen from 1851. During the Second World War, this mill played a more important role. During this period, the miller illegally made large quantities of flour that kept many families alive. The versatility of Twente continues to surprise you. Also around Lonneker you walk through a wonderfully quiet landscape where bushes, streams and hay and grasslands alternate. At the intersection of Braakweg and Zuidkamp, ​​you will pass two monumental buildings. At number 140 you can see the oldest building: a coach house from 1884.

When you arrive at Restaurant 't Hertme's Ambacht, you probably feel like eating something. Then you can take a look at the Grotenhuis, a former manor house.
