Middag-Humsterland

Northwest of the city of Groningen lies the National Landscape Middag-Humsterland; one of the oldest untouched cultural landscapes in the Netherlands. Middag-Humsterland and the Reitdiep area are part of the old dwelling mounds landscape that has been inhabited since about 6oo BC. Roads and paths meander through the extensive farm landscape in which you can look almost infinitely around you. On top of the dwelling mounds you will find beautiful historic farms, various Groningen estate houses and medieval brick churches. But also authentic landscape elements such as former riverbeds and gullies, desolate dwelling mounds, winding watercourses, the irregular subdivision of farmlands and old dikes have been preserved in this area.
