The Landscape

In Northeast Groningen there is an unspoilt nature reserve of more than a thousand hectares of salt marsh and seven thousand hectares of tidal flats. In the past, this impressive area was repeatedly the cause of part of Groningen being flooded. Diking and reclamation was the answer of the people of Groningen. The result was a huge flat countryside with lots of views. These fertile polders today form a colorful landscape that seems to have no end. On the horizon you can see the red roofs of the manor farms. The waving golden grain grows well here, the sun glitters in the water and the sheep graze happily. There is a lot of space and there is a natural silence. You feel as free as a bird and there is a very pleasant peace in your state of mind.
