Cycling around Slochteren

Enjoy peace and space in a vast landscape with reed marshes, peat lakes, forests and herb-rich grasslands



Enjoying peace and space in a newly developed nature in the region of Midden-Groningen. Where in the past extensive peat bogs and swamp forests determined the landscape, the area is now mainly characterized by a wide landscape with reed marshes, peat lakes, forests and grasslands full of herbs. Old nature and new nature have been merged into the young but extensive nature reserve 't Roegwold. Together with the Schildmeer nature reserve and the reed swamp of Tetjehorn, they form a uninterrupted and varied area where you can have a relaxed recreation and enjoy nature.
