Water everywhere you look, reed beds, swamp forests and a soothing silence. It is not surprising that the Weerribben is a popular place for walking. Put on shoes that are allowed to get dirty and go on a discovery tour in this beautiful wetland nature reserve.

The origin of the Weerribben
During this walk you walk through the Weerribben, an area that is part of the Weerribben-Wieden National Park. The landscape here looks pristine, but nothing could be further from the truth. The Weerribben was created by peat extraction from the Middle Ages until shortly after the Second World War. The cut peat was laid to dry on narrow strips of land intended for this purpose. These strips were called 'ribs'. During the walk, enjoy the tranquility that is only occasionally disturbed by singing birds or a splash when a frog jumps into the water.

Restaurant Ant Waeter
Before and after your walk you can go to Restaurant Ant Waeter. As the name of the restaurant says, you can enjoy a delicious meal or a drink along the water. Take a seat on the terrace and look out over the water while you enjoy a cup of coffee with homemade apple pie, a small snack or an extensive meal. Do you long for more after this hike? Then cycle route 352493 and explore the Weerribben further.

Flora and fauna
Reeds and bulrushes often grow at the edges of the waters of the Weerribben. In the water itself you will find crab shear, water lilies, yellow plump and water shear that brighten up the area. The animals that you mainly see in this area are birds such as purple herons, the black tern and the reed warbler. Especially in spring the many birds in this area sing noisily, although nature lovers will not mind at all.
