Day out with the kids? Fun day trips for the children, including the Wildlands Adventure Zoo in Emmen, Tree Canopy Walkway (Boomkroonpad) or rather the Children's museum at the Drents museum?
Zoo in Emmen
You will experience nature in a very close way, hearing, seeing and feeling the animals in an environment without any fences and barriers, similar to their own own, original environment. Here you can experience the daily life of animals from all continents.
Boomkroonpad (Tree canopy walkway)
The tree canopy walkway offers a lot of fun, among various other things in its surrounding area. Like an exciting tour through the root tunnel. Move like a squirrel through the top of the trees. Play on the Bosweide or in the Lorkenspeelbos, where you can join in but you don't have to. Building huts, for instance, or baking rolls. Go on a hunt through the wood together or take a ride on the "Bospaardentram" past the finest spots within the forestry area.
Children's museum Full of Energy
