On the border of Overijssel and Friesland is a beautiful vast and water-rich landscape with centuries-old villages. What looks like a wild primordial landscape was indeed created by humans. The centuries-old village of Oldemarkt soon appears on the horizon. On the Marktplein you walk past the impressive Reformed Church, which originally dates from the fifteenth century. If you first walk into the Hoofdstraat a little to the right, you will see the Sint Willibrorduskerk and then a beautiful monumental seventeenth-century house with stepped gables. You walk along the Linde, a river that forms the border between Overijssel and Friesland in this part. On your right is De Rottige Meente, a nature reserve that was created by peat extraction in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Here you will see a mosaic of water and land, reeds and flowering grasslands. Otters that have come to swim from the nearby Weerribben live in the Rottige Meente. The route ends at Recreation Center De Kluft, a wonderful place to stay in De Weerribben (one of the most beautiful nature reserves in the Netherlands).
