Giethemer Kerkpad

The Giethemer Kerkpad is a path that runs from Giethmen to Ommen. Residents of the town used to walk along this path to church on Sundays. This was the only way there. Giethmen is a hamlet in the municipality of Ommen. The town is located on the left bank of the Regge and Ommen is located on the other bank. This posed a problem for the residents of Giethmen who had to go to church in Ommen. This is how the Giethemer church bridge was created, which ensured that all churchgoers arrived safely at their destination. The bridge is a surprising structure in the middle of the natural and rural landscape. In the past you would find church paths at several places on which people walked to the church. These paths regularly ran over rivers and streams. Many of those church paths have been lost, but here between Giethmen and Ommen the path has been well preserved. A nice reminder of days gone by.
