Description

A day of cycling through the best preserved stream and esdorp landscape in Western Europe? Then go to Drenthe. And enjoy the historic atmosphere and tranquility.

The Drentsche Aa
In the National stream and esdorpen landscape Drentsche Aa you drive through a backdrop of grasslands, bushes, hedgerows, heaths and ash trees. Historic? Yes, because the landscape has hardly changed in 150 years. For example, the Drentsche Aa still meanders through the landscape in an original way. Where almost every other area in the Netherlands was being overhauled, people took the landscape here as it was. It seems as if you are driving through an open air museum in Drenthe.

Saxon Farms
Not only the landscape exudes the atmosphere of the past: you will also see old Saxon farms, such as in the atmospheric Gasteren and Anderen. The route also takes you a bit through Boswachterij Gieten-Borger, a wonderfully quiet place. In Gasselte, you can take a look at the strikingly white Church of Our Lady, which originally dates from the mid-thirteenth century. At Restaurant de Wiemel you can enjoy a nice cup of coffee, lunch and dinner.
