The Onlanden - it sounds a bit ominous, but what a beautiful area this is. Enjoy this rugged low moor in the valley between Drenthe sand and Groningen clay.

After a good night's sleep at the centrally located Van Der Valk Groningen - Hoogkerk, you set off. You put on your hiking boots and explore the Onlanden. These rugged low-moor areas spread out around the Leekstermeer, the largest lake in Drenthe. The Onlanden are located exactly in the valley between the higher Drenthe sandy soils and Groningen clay soils. Here you can enjoy beautiful views of grasslands, but you will also see bushes and hedgerows.

On the way there and back you walk through the hamlet of Peizermade.'Made\\\' means pasture or grassland, so the pasture at Peize. This used to be a very humid area that often flooded. You can still see water there: you cross the Gouw and follow the Peizerdiep for a long way. Drink a cup of coffee at your starting point, Van der Valk Hotel Groningen - Hoogkerk, before you drive back home!
