Brinkdorpen
On this route, you pass through no fewer than five brinkdorpen: Roden, Norg, Zeijen, Tynaarlo and Vries.
Brinkdorpen were built in medieval times—often atop a sandy ridge to remain dry. Each village had one or more squares; its brink. This was the centre of the village, around which houses and farms were built. 

A lot of things went on on the brink. You would often find a dobbe, a deep hole filled with water, there. This water was used as drinking water for livestock, but also to wash clothes or extinguish fires. In the morning, livestock was gathered on the brink to graze outside of the village; they would return in the evening, after which the farmers would pick up their own animals.

Right next to the village lay a large piece of land, the es (an area of high-lying farmland). Each farmer had his own small piece of farmland on this es, on which he would cultivate rye, barley, oats or potatoes. Surrounding the es were hedgerows. These ensured deer, wild boards and rabbits couldn’t eat or trample the crops. Behind the hedgerows, there would be forest. This is where the farmers chopped the wood they used as fuel or to repair their houses and tools.

The brinkdorpen often have many remnants from the past: old farms, dirt tracks, the brink, the es and sometimes a dobbe
