Slochteren Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 15 photos

Most people think of natural gas when you ask them about Slochteren. Since the sixties natural gas gets transported to households worldwide.
But there is more than just the large amount of natural gas.
There s a beautiful landscape, lots of cultural and recreational opportunities and annual known events like the week of sailing at the "Schildmeer", a lake nearby.

This little village is built along the road, so called ribbon development. The surrounding area is flat and sometimes bushy.

There s also a beautiful manor called "Fraeylemaborg ", I got a page on it VT Fraeylemaborg
