The Essential
Vorden is a small place in the old county of Zutphen ( Achterhoek ), a region of woods and pastures. It is located in the region of the eight castles which nestle in the surrounding woods: Vorden, Hackfort, Kiefskamp, Wildenborch, Bramel, Onstein, Medler and Wiersse. The region has a dozen or so small brick manor houses, which are evidence of the popularity of these forest regions for great lords for hunting.
