Other destinations[edit]


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.

Get in[edit]

The area has good connections with the rest of the country as well as with neighboring Germany.

Get around[edit]

Depending on where you want to go, you can get around by train, but for other destinations a car or bus may be required.
