Wandering through ’t Land van Stein

9 mi/15 km – Walking route past “Het klooster” cheesemakers and farm.

At the beginning of the 14th century the name Land van Steyn appears, named after the then lord Arnoud van Steyn (±1266 – ±1328). It is a high glory with its own rights. In this country stood the monastery of Emmaüs, where Desiderius Erasmus was a monk. Now there is a farm called “The Monastery”. Erasmus was not fond of this place. He found it wet, cold and draughty.
