Unknown often makes unloved

Ommen is a small town in the province Overijssel along the "Vecht" river. It is a friendly place surrounded by agricultural land that is mixed with here and there some forestry and heatherfields. Many campings can be found and it is a popular spot for the Dutch to enjoy their holiday in own country. Well, maybe that is an excellent way in getting to know them better as a visiting toursit from far away?

Three windmills and a funny museum

Ommen is definately not a completely boring place, though some youngsters will immediately disagree with me. The place has a lot to offer for visitors of the Netherlands that like to see something special yet typically Dutch. Three windmills surround the small town and one can do (for example) canoeing or biking to enjoy the typical Dutch landscapes. About this and the funny museum you can read all in my tips.
