Description

In Westerwolde, peace, history and natural beauty are up for grabs. This route takes you through the Sellinger forest, the stream valley of the Ruiten Aa and through the fortress Bourtange.

Sellingerbos
The route starts at Pavilion Jachthaven de Runde. On the terrace you have a beautiful view of the harbor, while you enjoy your drink and snack. In the countryside you will pass some characteristic old farms. You also drive through the Sellingerbos. Here you will find the Theater of Nature, a unique nature viewing hill where nature gives a different performance every day. Be sure to take a look here!

Bourtange
Get off in Bourtange to get a taste of the atmosphere, because the fortress village still looks the same as it did in 1742. William of Orange had the fortress built in the sixteenth century to liberate Groningen from Spanish hands. Outside the fortress you can still see part of the old wetland. In the valley of the Ruiten Aa you can see grain-covered ash trees and grasslands bordered with woods. Westerwolde is so beautiful!
