Car Puzzle Route Midden-Groningen
When you drive this route through Midden-Groningen, the wide-ranging beauty of the region will never cease to amaze you. You’ll encounter the numerous characteristic Oldambt- and peat farms, landscapes designed with drawing table precision, watercourses that originated during the ice age, and various new parts of impressively rough nature.
The treasury that is Midden-Groningen is also filled with many products and innovations that the rest of the Netherlands and even places around the world have been profiting from. That was already the case throughout history, is still the case today, and will continue to be the case into the future.
Do you want to discover what it was that brought that famously typical Groningen identity into being? Let yourself be immersed in the story about Midden-Groningen; what brought it into being, and what the future has in store for this region.
This car puzzle route can be driven the entire year around, from Wednesdays until Sundays.
