Prattenburg is located on the Utrechtse Heuvelrug near Veenendaal, the estate is over 4 square km in size and is privately owned. The walk leads through a hilly forest area with a view of the Rhine valley and the Betuwe at the southernmost point of the route. The current castle was built in 1887, partly on the foundations of an older building. In the fourth century, owner Radboud rescued the graceful princess Cunera, after she had been attacked by the Huns near a thousand other virgins near Cologne. He took her to Prattenburg and she became popular there because of her charm and the care for the poor in the area. A king belongs to a castle and that is only visible after the first slightly rising meters of walking. A deer has nothing to do with human goodness and sounds a barking alarm. Loud and close, but invisible behind trees. Because there is no shortage of trees during this walk, the estate is almost completely wooded. A bit boring, kind by kind. Norway spruce, Douglas fir, Japanese larch, American and beech. It is clear: this is where money must be made from timber production. Only here and there the manager lets the reins celebrate and is it messy, as it should be in a natural forest. You will see black woodpeckers in such a mess, looking for beetles in a forgotten tree. At pole eight there is an ancient river valley. Geology is as interesting as the forest. Thanks to the penultimate ice age. The hills on which you walk are mountains of soil and stones that then remained as Moors. The highest point of the route towers no less than fifty meters above the Lower Rhine, on a bench you can recover from the view. When the last ice age came to an end and meltwater left its mark on the landscape, mammoths and woolly rhinos had to clear the field. It also ended badly with Cunera. Starry creates envy and the wife of Radboud, listening to the ominous name Aldegonde, strangled her rival with a scarf. 'Talking' does not mean 'bad soil' for nothing. The route is also easy to follow without the map in the brochure. The length of the route can be shortened from pole 10 and that saves 2.5 km. Dogs are allowed if on a lead. Just past the entrance gate is a wooden sign (was broken during this walk) announcing the IVN nature trail, then continue straight ahead. The route is marked with posts with the head painted green. Some have a number that refers to text in the route folder.
