You can enjoy cycling between the Drents-Friese Wold and the Weerribben. This area is called the Stellingwerf, a strange duck in the bite. Although it is located in Friesland, Frisian was not spoken here!

Here you cycle through the Stellingwerfs, a part of East Friesland where Stellingwerfs, a Low Saxon dialect, was spoken until the 1970s. The name Stellingwerf is already mentioned in the Middle Ages. Yard means a place where justice is administered. The area was governed by three administrators (\\\'stelling\\\'), who were elected annually.

At the beginning and end of the route you cycle a bit along the Linde, a beautiful natural river where kingfishers also occur. On your route you will also find many small farming villages and De Eese, an estate from 1241 with a beautiful country house and an old castle. Back in the beautiful old village of Noordwolde you can take a look at the Nationaal Weaving Museum, where you can see different ways to weave baskets, for example.
