Staphorst Travel Guide: 36 reviews and 82 photos
Staphorst is one of the rare villages in The Netherlands where people still wear traditional costume.
I am a little shy to ask these people to pose in front of my camera. So I have used some postcards. But the farms are very nice photo topics as well. Even though this is a small village, it is Dutch and yet exotic and I haven't finished exploring yet!
See more in the Local Customs Tips!
There are quite a few places around Meppel (main town in the area) that are worth visiting. However, Meppel is on the brink of two provinces, so you would not be able to detect that if you look at my Travel Page.
You could easily cycle between these places. It's a lovely rural area.
So here goes:
Kolderveen (very rural, dairy farm icecream)
Steenwijk (small town, Unesco heritage site)
Giethoorn (Venice of the north)
Staphorst (beautiful old farms)
Ruinerwold(stone's throw from Meppel)
Kallenkote (Indonesian bird park)
Frederiksoord(colony of welfare)
Vledder(small village, museum of fake art)
Zwolle (largest town in the area)
Meppel (lively nightlife, shopping, printing museum)
Schiphorst (stately home as exclusive hotel/restaurant, stork farm)
