There are no less than 3 national parks within a stone's throw:

  • Het Drents Friese Woud
    The Drents-Friese Wold National Park is one of the largest nature reserves in the Netherlands.
  •  Dwingelerveld
    The Dwingelderveld is an almost 4000-hectare wetland area in the southwest of Drenthe with an almost undisturbed horizon. Species of birds and animals can live in this area, which have fewer opportunities in other landscapes.
  •  De Weerribben en De Wieden
    You can see all the hues in the development of open water to swamp forest. Advancing bank vegetation and densely growing water, floating hoops, reed lands and nutrient-poor grassland. Typical marsh dwellers such as birds, fish, mammals, reptiles and insects, find a place in the varied vegetation and the special plant world.
