Trage Tochten in Ede

In addition to LAW routes, the municipality of Ede also has a number of Trage Tochten [Slow Paced Routes]. These are nature walks that go over unpaved paths for at least 70% and that also go over parts of cycle paths as little as possible. In addition, the Trage Tochten offer a varied landscape, for example a mix of farmland and nature, and are easily accessible by public transport. Most routes also offer rest stops along the way in the form of restaurants or benches.

The name Trage Tochten means that you can take your time, escape the daily hustle and bustle and enjoy the landscape.
