Cycling around Midwolda

A wonderful bike tour in a historical cultural landscape with lakes, canals, forests and estates



Midwolda is located at the Oldambtmeer, with 14 million cubic meters of water and an area of 800 hectares one of the larger lakes in the Netherlands. Nature can be found everywhere around Oldambtmeer. Young forests, grasslands, swamps, hedgerows and push-moraines in the east. A varied landscape with open water, canals, dikes, marshes, reed lands and puddles in the south. In the northwest you can enjoy the only primeval forest in Groningen, vast grain and rapeseed fields, hedgerows, grasslands and monumental farmsteads. And in the middle the water-rich nature and residential development area Blauwestad: once arable land, now a beautiful residential area surrounded by water and an unspoiled nature.
