Veenhuizen is best known as a former colony and detention village where beggars and vagrants were once given a disciplinary re-education. But in addition to the historical value, the nature and cultural history around the village are certainly worth a visit. The peace and quiet in the pristine, endless nature of Fochteloërveen. The lush stream valleys, drifting sand forests and the picturesque villages with age-old Saxon farms in the Norger Esdorpenlandschap. And one of the oldest forests in the Netherlands with a dolmen that is even a few thousand years older than the forest itself.
