The East of the Netherlands is mostly visited by local visitors for its forests and historic cities.
This part of the Netherlands will be less well known to most travelers. Geographically, its often forested and hilly landscape sets it apart from the archetypal cow-filled meadows of the western part of the country. Many people move here after their retirement and life is generally lived at a somewhat slower pace than in the west.
Although there are many different local dialects in this area, they are of no concern to travelers.
The area has good connections with the rest of the country as well as with neighboring Germany.
Depending on where you want to go, you can get around by train, but for other destinations a car or bus may be required.
