The national park Drents-Friese Wold is one of the
biggest united conservation areas in the Netherlands.
This wide landscape of stretched woods and moors lies
on the border of both Dutch provinces Friesland and
Drenthe and occupies 6150 hectare of land. The park is
very suitable for biking and walking.
The closed forest area of the Drents-Friese Wold is the second biggest in
the Netherlands. Since the middle of the 19th century this large part of
the former wide moorland was gradually taken over by trees. At the
estate Berkenheuvel and the Dieverzand you may find wonderful fir
forests. Hidden in these woods are fairy tale like fens and small moor
areas like the Snoekveen and the Groote Veen. In the south west part of
the national park lies an extensive moor, the Doldersummer- and
Wapserveld. Just as beautiful is the Aekingerzand, a dynamic sand-drift.

In the middle of the Aekingerzand stands a robust watchtower. From
the platform, you have a wonderful view over the entire sand-drift area
and the neighbouring stream valley.
Very nice place... by the evening?
No early in the morning with the sun rising behind the watchtower.
