Drenthe is one of the greenest provinces in the Netherlands. The natural landscape is best explored by bike, since Drenthe has 1,400 kilometers of cycling paths. Time seems to stand still as you cycle along the numerous trails through the vast areas of natural beauty with heath, sand dunes, marshes, forests and swamps.
Highlights of Drenthe
The province of Drenthe is inextricably linked with ‘hunebedden’. Drenthe has no less than 54 of these 5000 year old passage graves. The Borger Hunebed Centre explains to you how these tombs were made with stones weighing up to 40 tons each. Other highlights of the province are the zoo Dierenpark Emmen and former concentration camp Westerbork.
If you want to relax and unwind, you should visit Drenthe. The peace and quiet of this beautiful province is only disturbed once a year during the Assen TT. Over 100.000 motorcycle fans come to watch the world’s best bikers and bikes on the Dutch Grand Prix circuit.
