A country of farmland and nature, Drenthe has a history that extends to medieval times and is a destination well-suited to relaxation and down time in an unspoiled place. The province is marked by the prevalence of its large stone tombs known as dolmens, and its capital city is Assen. Other urban areas include Emmen, Meppel and Hoogeveen.
Perhaps the signature events of the year in Denthe are the four-day cycling events that take place in the countryside of Denthe. There are well-developed trails throughout the countryside, and the lack of arduous hills makes cycling a pastime for all. These events are indeed family-oriented. In Assen, the cycling is motorized; an annual June event known as the TT Circuit Assen is a major event for motorcycle enthusiasts. Assen also has a monastery and abbey in its past and today stands Drents Museum, which shines a considerable light on 'bog bodies' found around the area that date to many centuries before Christ.
The Dutch parks and lodges will soothe and calm you as prepare for your day in Drenthe, or wind down from it.
