Today it is sparsely populated, but in prehistoric times Drenthe was one of the most densely populated areas of the Netherlands. The remains indicating this attract monument lovers like a magnet. In the region there are over 50 so-called dolmens (hunebedden). According to researchers, the buildings were built around 3500 BC. Plan a trip to the Drents Museum to see artifacts from the region. It would also be a good idea to visit the Orvelte open-air museum.
In addition to artifacts from before our era, tourists can visit, among others: zoo in Emmen and attractions in Assen. The capital is famous for the annual TT Assen motorcycle race. Moreover, the landscapes of Drenthe tempt you to come with a camper. Pack your bikes in the trunk and spend an active holiday in the bosom of nature.
