The historic Hanseatic town of Ommen is located in a wooded landscape on the banks of the river Vecht. In the Vechtdal valley almost all Dutch landscapes can be found and there is still plenty of space and tranquility. As you cycle, the landscape changes continuously and you wind through dark forests, heaths and sand drifts and where you cannot escape the charming sight of the fens and lakes with cheerfully blooming water lilies. And almost silently the road suddenly continues through an idyllic farm landscape with hedgerows, green meadows and rolling fields. And then of course there is the Vecht itself, which winds through the beautiful landscape that it has formed itself. On the hills, once upon a time pushed up by the propelling ice, you have a fantastic view over the varied landscape of the Vechtdal.
