Raerd Roaming Route

(11.9 km)

As the principal village in the former municipality of Rauwerderhem, Raerd was a prosperous and alluring place. You can still see evidence of this today. The impressive properties here were built by retired farmers. The Reformed Church will probably be one of the first things that catches your eye. The church stands on a raised churchyard. The interior dates back to the 18th-century with funerary hatchments of wealthy families that lived in Raerd. Unfortunately, nothing remains of the country house that once stood near the village but Jongemastate Park, which surrounded the estate, is still a lovely place to walk. You will see the old outline of the building and occasionally come across remnants of the country house.
