Holten is located in the middle of a beautiful undulating landscape with more than twenty 'Dutch mountains', and also at the foot of one of the largest contiguous heathland areas of north-west Europe: the National Park Sallandse Heuvelrug. With its steep slopes, the Sallandse Heuvelrug forms a prominent part in the Overijssel landscape. Stunning panoramas from the 150,000-year-old ridge are therefore guaranteed. But also outside the park the Salland landscape offers a rural temptation in the form of characteristic farms in green meadows interspersed with beautiful mixed forests, hedgerows, open fields, country estates and slow-flowing brooks.
