Description

Drents-Friese Wold National Park is located on the border of Drenthe and Friesland. Here you cycle past beautiful vast forests, heathlands, shifting sand areas and stream valley grasslands. The perfect location if you are looking for peace and space.

The Doldersummerveld
Almost the entire route takes you through the national park. After the Veluwe, this is the largest continuous forest area in the Netherlands. Here you often hear nothing but the chirping birds and the drumming of the black woodpecker that occurs here. If you're lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of this little bird. On the way you cycle through the Doldersummerveld, a moist heath reserve that is maintained by grazing sheep. You also cycle past the sheepfold where the sheep stay overnight. In the accompanying information center you can learn more about the sheep and the environment. In the south of the area you will find a watchtower that offers you a beautiful view over the Doldersummerveld.

The Schultehuis

In Diever you cycle past the Schultehuis. This house was built in 1604 as an official residence for the Schulte van Diever. The schulte used to be responsible for maintaining public order and he also had administrative and judicial tasks. The Schultehuis is well preserved and church services were held until 1989. Today you will find an archaeological museum in the house.
