Furthermore, Assen and its surrounding area has a lot to offer in cultural & natural respects.

Drenthe is beautiful in every season and features so many beautiful natural areas where you can walk or cycle or even take your children on an adventure. In addition to the many nature reserves, there are also three National Parks, which offer all the special natural features of the Dutch landscape. These parks may be smaller and more intimate compared to National Parks in other parts of Europe, but rest assured; there is plenty of room to cycle and walk for hours. Each National Park has its own distinct personality.
