A hunebed, the historic Brink van Diever, the woods of the Drents-Friese Wold and Shakespeare. You will experience it all on this versatile route!

At Landhotel & Restaurant Diever you can enjoy a coffee before you walk to your first attraction: Dolmen D52, located in an idyllic spot. On the way to Diever you will see some beautiful thatched farmhouses. At the Brink you can still experience the atmosphere of days gone by. Here you can see the Schultehuis, which dates from 1604. The house has been preserved in its original state. The Saint Pancratius Church is considered one of the most beautiful churches in Drenthe.

Shakespeare Theater
From the Brink you regularly see information boards about the history of the Shakespeare theatre, about the actors who have performed here and about the plays that have been performed since 1946. That makes your walk through the beautiful landscape extra interesting! In the TIP on the Bosweg an exhibition has been set up with, among other things, stage costumes. On the Hezenes you pass the Shakespeare theater itself. Through the woods you walk back to Landhotel & Restaurant Diever.
