Salland’s Beauty

On Sunday March 22, 2015 the new GCCC season is starting in the beautiful and hospitable Salland region. Salland. Paul and Marchel invite you for a varied drive exploring the lovely and varied landscape. You’ll see castles, museums, and panoramas across the rivers Ijssel and Vecht, as well as small rivers and pretty picturesque towns and villages.

Where are the start and the finish?

From 12.00 h. you are welcome at restaurant De Barones, Gerner Es 5a, 7722 RX Dalfsen. This restaurant has ample parking space in its own grounds. Once inside, a cup of coffee or tea with some pastry will be waiting for you. Registration is until 12:30.

After the start we’ll cross the river Vecht. Ringing a bell? For ‘old’ GCCC members it will do. In 2007 we had a drive in this region as well, but the overlap with the present ride is very limited. There is so much more to be discovered! If you like, a stop can be made at the Nijenhuis Castle at Heino, well-known for its collection of statues and modern art. We’ll then cross the river IJssel by ferry. The charge for that is € 1,80 for car and driver, for each additional passenger € 0,40. From the ferry via Hattem we’re heading towards the old IJssel Bridge and cross it, which is followed by a nice bit of Zwolle, the Engelsewerk and the Katerveer lock. Then it’s back to De Barones.

Fancy something to eat afterwards?

At the Barones we can enjoy a three course dinner (€ 25,- per person).

A choice can be made between:

Too far for the day or just lazy?

Possibly you think Dalfsen a bit too far for one day. Restaurant De Barones is linked to the Haersholte Hotel, and we have made a special deal with them. In the weekend GCCC members pay € 77.50 all-in for 2 people per night. This is inclusive of breakfast and tourist tax. To make use of this offer you have to book a room yourself by contacting the hotel by telephone: 0529 435 666 or make a reservation via their website. Don’t forget to mention that you belong to the GCCC.

Can I take the dog?

Dogs are welcome at the restaurant, but the hotel unfortunately does not allow them. Of course, dogs have to be kept on a leash and must behave.

And the price of all this?

Members pay € 2,- , guests € 5,-. Included are coffee/tea with something sweet. As usual, the three course dinner and drinks are extra.

How can I register?

Sorry, registering is no monger possible. Sunday March 15 was the deadline.
