A wonderful trip through the Onlanden, full of beautiful views over the grasslands. The route leads you past a beautiful estate, the Leekstermeer and through a few nice villages.

Mansinge estate
The Brink van Roden is a real must-see. Here you can see the Winsinghhof at number 10, a farm from 1672. The nave of the Catharinakerk was built in the fourteenth century. If you cycle out of the village, you will soon pass Landgoed Mensinge. Because of its characteristic landscape, this is also called Drenthe in a nutshell. The centuries-old manor house is home to a museum that gives a good idea of how the rich lived here.

Around the Leekstermeer, the largest lake in Drenthe, you drive through rugged low moor areas in the valley between the higher sandy soils of Drenthe and Groningen clay soils: the Onlanden. Nearby you will find esdorp Peize. In the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the village was known for its hop cultivation. The hops were mainly purchased by brewers from nearby Groningen. In cozy Eelde you make a stop at Café Theater G & A Boelens, take a seat on the large (heated) terrace before cycling back to Roden.
