Doing & Experiencing
Time to go out and explore! Enjoy a well-deserved holiday with the entire family or just for the two of you. A holiday abroad, and yet familiar and close to home. A holiday filled with plenty of time and space to go out and engage in active pursuits, to enjoy nature, or a perfectly relaxing holiday because the children have plenty to do, or one where you take on the coolest adventures along with the kids. Drenthe makes all of these options available and more!
Drenthe, the coolest playground in the Netherlands
For children, the province of Drenthe is like one big playground. No matter which part of Drenthe you are staying in, your children will be able to find a new adventure around every corner and behind every tree. They can romp through nature, visit the little new-born lambs at the local sheepfold, go diving in swimming ponds and clamber in climbing parks, ride the roller coasters at the coolest amusement parks, and go on an expedition in WILDLANDS Adventure Zoo Emmen. Give your children a wonderful gift; take them to Drenthe!More information
Outdoor & Active
Put on your sturdiest walking shoes, because once you get started on one of the many trails in Drenthe, you’ll want to explore the entire province! Grab your bike for a comfortable tour or take on the challenge and explore the winding paths along woodland ponds, forests, and heaths on your mountain bike. Drenthe also features many beautiful streams, so a canoe trip also comes highly recommended. Or, you can go riding and soak up the outdoors on horseback! You’ll soon find that you’ll never want to leave.
Outdoor & Active tips
As a province, Drenthe has a rich cultural past. As such, there is plenty of culture to be experienced on every street corner.
