"Jaco's Emmen Page" Assen by Jaco_Emmen

Assen Travel Guide: 138 reviews and 333 photos

Update 24 July 2002
Updating my Amsterdam Travelogues with some 150 new photos and stories about the Zaanseschans.

I live in the vilage called Emmen, about 35 kilometers south-east of Assen.

There are about 100,000 people living here, it's quite an industrial area but also good for tourists to have a look around in the local zoo and to see the 'Hunebedden'.

Do you have any ideas or remarks, please send me an e-mail, I will be glad to reply.


The atmosphere was good May 31st and I am already looking forward to the coming Festivals as we will have the C'est la Vie Festival on July 28th.


A Festival filled with street theater and podium performance. Maybe you would like to come as well? Opening is at 1pm and we party on until 1am on Monday morning :)

    What a culture trip for me via your pages and travelogues! Het Veenpark looks wonderful; great transportation tip; travelogues are awesome (blues, Jazz, pool) Thanks so much.

    Strange to find the tips about Emmen at the page of my birthplace. Nice to see all those known cafes, festivals and ... even the melkfabriek in Noordbarge ? Ik ontdekte het terras bij de waterskibaan in het Ermerzand ook toevalig vorig jaar.
