Drenthe is a province in the north of the Netherlands. I was born close to Assen, the capital. of Drenthe. At this moment I live in Emmen in the south east of Drenthe. Emmen, Assen are together with Hoogeveen and Meppel the bigger towns in the province with lots of faciclties.
Drenthe, being the Dutch province with the lowest amount of inhabitants per square kilometer, has also a lot of heatherfields and forests. The traditional villages in the surrounding landscape of old cultivated land, the so-called 'essen' are still very authentic and scenic. Some villages like Orvelte became a living museum, others are protected as cultural heritage.
Historically Drenthe is very known because of the 52 'hunebeds' scattered all over the province. A hunebed is made of huge boulders and is supposed to be a megalithic burial chamber.
Drenthe is very popular for holidays and short breaks. There are many mini-campings and holidaycentres, but also hotels and bed & breakfast.
Drenthe has a lot more interesting places to offer than I show now at this page. I lost a lot of pictures, but I start to take new ones. So this page will continue to grow in the future
