Congratulations!, you found your way to this lone page about Orvelte. Definitely worth a visit.
Orvelte is a little village in the north of the Netherlands, province Drenthe, just north east of Westerbork. When you visit you'll find many authentic farms but also art galleries and oldfashioned shops. Walking around is like being back several decennia in time.
You might wonder where you'll find all the locations mentioned in the tips. Well, not everything has an address but you can find a map on www.orvelte.net. Additionally I should say that everything is walkable very easily and close so you don't really miss anything.
Peat is what the province Drenthe is known for. Huge piles in Orvelte. It is a normal village where people live their country life. You can enter for free but if you want to visit the little museums or other features then you can by a combination ticket for € 6,50. Shops are free entry.
- Pros:Everything is walkable
- Cons:Can't think of any
- In a nutshell:www.orvelte.net
Actually, these remind me a bit of the carts in Romania. But of course The Netherlands was also an agricultural country... more travel advice
