autumnal colours are so nice.

A wonderful Sunday morning with a wonderful sun and some left overs from the low mist at the start of our second day this weekend when we walked from this point (Milsbeek) to Vierlingsbeek.
The trees you see are all in Germany, the meadows are in the Netherlands, the path we walked is called Grensweg (Boarder Road).
went with my sis for a walk actually to see the last of the autumn colours and trying to find the wisent (European bison) that is walking free around here since a month. Didn't see them but had very close encounters with a small group of Konik horses and a group of Scottish HIghlanders. They all (sis, mist, one spark of sunlight, horses, Scottish Highlanders and awesome autumn colours) made my day.

amazing to see the trees already in their fresh green. We are now hiking along the Pieterpad twice a year, first weekend in April and first weekend in October, but never have we seen so much green, so many blossoms as this year. I can tell you, we loved it.

entrance to Castle of Brederode
ingang naar Ruïne van Brederode
The castle of Brederode was built in 1282 by Willem van Brederode. The first castle consisted of a bailey and a square keep which probably stood at the present day courtyard. Its function was to control the through road to the Kennemerland.
This castle was besieged and destroyed by the Kabeljauw troops under the command of Gijsbert van Nijenrode in 1351.
Between 1354 and 1426 Brederode Castle was completely restored on the existing foundations. Until its destruction in 1426 by the people of Haarlem.
It took until 1464 before the northern part, which had been less damaged, was again suitable for habitation. The new castle wasn't a defensible house anymore, but a fairly comfortable residence. In 1491 however, the castle fell prey to plundering German soldiers and the castle fell into decay.
Around 1573, shortly after the siege of the city of Haarlem, Spanish troops set fire to the castle.
In the two and a half century that followed, from 1600 till 1862, the castle ruins slowly disappeared under the dune sands. Only a few building traces stuck out of the sand.
From 1862 until 1903 the castle ruins were excavated and researched. Also between 1986 and 1988 the castle's construction history was researched.

that is to say... it used to be one of the city gates of Zutphen.
FIrst called Saltpoort (Salt Gate) and was built between 1444 and 1446. It was in use as city gate pretty short until 1465 when it was closed. Since then the name was Drogenaptoren, after the citymusician Tonis Drogenap.
