There are some beautiful forest areas in the Heart of Drenthe. This route takes you through the forests of Grolloo and Schoonloo. You will also pass through the village of Orvelte, a real Drenthe beauty.

Orvelte Open Air Museum
Orvelte is located in the middle of the Drenthe esdorp landscape. This more than a thousand year old village is home to many historical sights. In a number of old buildings you can see - sometimes for a fee - how sawyers, blacksmiths and glassblowers lived and worked in earlier times. Extra nice: Orvelte is car-free!

Drenthe silence
In Boswachterij Grolloo and Boswachterij Schoonloo, heathlands and forests alternate. The deeper you drive into the woods, the quieter it becomes. The route also takes you through the village of Westerbork where you can admire the Gothic Stephanus Church from the fifteenth century. The lower part of the tower even dates from the thirteenth century.
