Lunteren

Lunteren is a city often visited by tourists staying in the forests in the summer months. A well-known attraction is the Old-Luntarian-Day, which as a part of the Ede Heather Week takes place at the end of August. On this day Lunteren travels back in time about 100 years. The village offers several national monuments: The church, the windmill ‘Hope’ and the dome, a watchtower located in the Galge hill in the Luntarian forest.
