Everywhere you go, you will find coloured posts that guide you through the woods, over heath and sand drifts. The most beautiful routes start from the information centres (definitely fun for children!). Explore both the sandy and peaty areas of Drenthe on foot. The differences are wonderful to experience and can be seen perfectly from the watchtowers in Boswachterij Odoorn and in the Bargerveen. Go for a walk with the forester or a guide. You will come across unexpected places and hear fascinating stories!
Lovely routes are a.o.:
Signposted 1.5-kilometre children's walk from Theehuis Polshoogte in forestry Odoorn. There is also a high watchtower here.
This is a long and varied route with quite a lot of nature and here and there some cultural history. The route crosses three traffic arteries which run from north to south: the A28 from 1971, the railway to Assen and Groningen which the Maatschappij tot Exploitatie van Staatsspoorwegen built around 1870 and the Linthorst Homanaal from 1927.
Walk of approx. 2.4 km.along traces of the past in Sleenerzand. Well-behaved dogs may run free, unless indicated otherwise along the way. Dogs must be kept on a leash in spring!
This route goes through woods, heathland and stream valleys. And by strolling you really mean strolling in this case! In the area, you can walk around freely anywhere. You can use the instructions in the route description or take a GPS device with you so that you don't miss the sights. The route, sequence and paths are not fixed, you are completely free!
From the car park of the former Kamp Westerbork you can walk an educational trail. The walking route goes through the Hooghalen forest area, past the former Kamp Westerbork, Hingsteveen and the radio observatory. The walk lasts approximately 1.5 hours.
