Forests, heaths, streams, and peat excavations together form the unique landscape in Southeast Friesland. From a scenic, cultural-historical, and linguistic point of view, Friesland is here slowly merging into the provinces of Drenthe and Overijssel. North of the river Tsjonger lies the Schoterland, a beautiful and varied landscape with meadows, stately mansions, and intimate lands, surrounded by forests, heath, and hedgerows. South of the river lies the Stellingwerven, a region that is hardly known to the general public and has therefore retained its authentic character. Here you will find extensive peat polders, ditches, canals, rivers, bogs, reed beds, locks, pumping stations, and mills. Lovers of peace, nature, and cultural history can indulge themselves here.
