Flowery meadows, old hedgerows and mysterious forests: the Vechtdal is a landscape that you sometimes think is not in the Netherlands.

Daydreaming in Rheeze
Rheeze is without a doubt one of the most beautiful green villages in Overijssel. Feel free to drive around the brink. And another one. Or two. And step off to fully enjoy the charming view: ancient Saxon farmhouses surrounded by meadows and stately old trees. A little further on are the Rheezer Belten, a striking strip of shifting dunes that is now largely wooded.

Ommen on the Vecht
From the banks of the Vecht you have a beautiful view of the pleasant town of Ommen. A little further on you will pass the esdorp of Arriën where a labor camp was located during the Second World War that was used as a buffer for Camp Westerbork. You also pass through the hamlets of Junne and Zeese, which still largely consist of old thatched Saxon farms: a leap back in time. Even in the woods it sometimes seems as if you have ended up in the wrong time, it is that quiet and beautiful. At the end of your route you can refuel at Rheezerwold Camping't Vakantiepark.

Regional Museum Ommen
If you have crossed the Vecht in Ommen, you will pass Den Oordt, one of the few remaining hexagonal windmills in the Netherlands. This mill would previously have been in Bathmen in the Zaan region. It was bought in 1824 and transported to Ommen, after which the mill was rebuilt into a sawmill. Behind the mill was a pond in which trees were first watered before they were sawn. In 1895 two pairs of grinding stones were installed and the new miller switched to the more lucrative grinding of grain. Regional museum Ommen is located under the mill. Do you also want to explore the beautiful rural region around Hardenberg? Then also drive route 327971.
