Cycling around Dokkum


"A beautiful meadow landscape with reed beds and flowering meadows, prehistoric terps and a fantastic view over the largest tidal area in the world."

The landscape

Between Dokkum and the Waddenzee there is a beautiful meadow landscape that transforms into picturesque cloudy skies at the horizon. The harmonious landscape with reed beds and flowering meadows is only interrupted by quiet villages, authentic farms, and rippling waterways. Wonderful clean sea air spreads from the dikes over the unique area with countless terps. And once on the dikes, a great view over the salt marshes of the largest tidal area in the world awaits. It is not without reason that the people here say: Welcome to the end of the world where the great enjoyment begins.
