In days gone by, members of the nobility were drawn to the area and built magnificent estates surrounded by parks and woodland in this picturesque landscape. Fortunately, these estates have been well preserved. In this part of the region, you can also see the only remaining medieval stronghold in Friesland. 

In short, a chance to enjoy 55 kilometres of beautiful scenery and wonderful sights!
