The water-surrounded landscape in the Gaasterland is a special part of the Netherlands. On a relatively small surface you will find here a very varied landscape with historic cities, picturesque villages and traditional farms. In addition to the well-known Frisian landscape with lakes, canals, ditches and meadows, Gaasterland also has dense deciduous forests, wide wooded banks, old coppice forests, meandering brooks, charming vistas and beautiful cliffs. At the highest point near the village Oudemirdum you can enjoy phenomenal views over the gently rolling landscape and the IJsselmeer lake.
