The Mantingerveld nature reserve is a beautiful and authentic example of the open Drenthe moorland. By combining several small nature reserves into one large contiguous moor landscape, nature finds itself in the primordial landscape as it has always been. The beauty of this vast landscape is further emphasized by the presence of a prehistoric forest, jagged sand drifts with oak and pine trees and centuries-old juniper bushes. Surrounding the idyllic villages you find golden-yellow undulating fields and in the stream valley of the meandering brook Oude Diep, wet grasslands alternate with wooded banks and alder forests.
