From Ommen you can follow the course of the Overijsselse Vecht in the direction of Mariënberg. This route takes you through the floodplains of this river with forests, heaths and green meadows. A wonderfully quiet route for nature lovers.

From primeval forest to heathland
Ommen train station is the starting point of this route, on the outskirts of Ommen. From here you walk through the hamlet of Bethmen and then you cross the woods around Ommen. Originally these are primeval forests, but they were cut down for the most part. Dry heaths and sand drifts were the result. At the end of the 19th century and in the 20th century, the forests were replanted on a large scale. As a result, you can still walk through beautiful forest areas here. Only here and there is a small moor or a sandy plain to be found. The forests now have a protected status, so that everything can no longer be cut down.

Views at Beerze
The towns of Junne and Beerze are located on the edge of the forest area. Around Beerze you can enjoy surprising vistas in a varied landscape. You will also find all kinds of animals here. Keep your eyes open, don't make too much noise and you might spot a deer.

Mariënberg aan de Vecht
Eventually you will arrive at the Mariënberg train station. Mariënberg is a small village near the Vecht. The village was founded in the 14th century when the Brothers from the monastery near Sibculo built a hut here as a base for their work in the peatlands east of the current village. From there, a village arose on this spot.
