This route takes you through National Landscape Drentsche Aa to Assen. Discover the contrast between this peaceful nature reserve where time seems to have stood still and the pleasant city of Assen, which is full of historic buildings. Along the way you can also admire typical Drenthe dolmens.

Tarel .'s restaurant
The first part of this route takes you from Schipborg to Assen through the Drentsche Aa National Landscape. Man has hardly had any influence on this nature reserve and that is why it has looked about the same for centuries. Here you will find forests and heaths through which the brook the Drentse Aa meanders. In this beautiful area you can take a break at the Restaurant of Tarel. Enjoy a tasty snack and a drink here and gain new energy to continue your bike ride.

Discover Assen
After about 35 kilometers of cycling you arrive in Assen, one of the youngest cities with city rights in the Netherlands. Assen has a protected cityscape, so there is plenty to see here. You then cycle further through the stream landscape of the Drentsche Aa to Schipborg. You end your trip at B&B Schipborg, where you can book an overnight stay. From here you can also follow route 124246 and route 334185.

Typical Drenthe dolmens
You can hardly miss it when you take a trip in Drenthe: dolmens. On this route you can admire two of these historic gems. Hunebed D17 is located near the church of Rolde and a little further you will find Hunebed D18. Dolmen D17 is no longer in optimal condition, but dolmen D18 still looks good.
