In Westerwolde, peace, history and natural beauty are there for the taking. This route takes you through the Sellingerbos, the stream valley of the Ruiten Aa and through the Bourtange fortress.
The route starts at Paviljoen Jachthaven de Runde. On the terrace you have a beautiful view of the harbor, while you enjoy your drink and snack. In the outlying area 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!
Get off in Bourtange to taste the atmosphere, because the fortified 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 marshland. In the valley of the Ruiten Aa you will see grain-covered ash and grasslands that are lined with wooden belts. Westerwolde is so beautiful!
