The walking tour will take in over 5,000 years of history
By Thomas Ansell
Connect International, the social foundations that has helped Internationals make lasting connections for over 20 years, will be holding its first Drenthe event on Sunday September 27.
The Excursion to Emmendennen will explore one of the most beautiful areas in the Northern Netherlands: the breathtaking landscape around Emmen. The walking tour will take in over 5,000 years of history, including the prehistoric (and UNESCO protected) Hunebedden, beautiful fields of heather, historic buildings; and even sand-dunes located hundreds of kilometres from the coast.
The walking tour will begin in Emmen at 11:00, before wending past Emmen’s Grote Kerk, the 1681-built Saksische Boerderij, and the world-renowned Hunebedden D41, D38, D39; and D40.
A lower point of history will also be explored during the walk: the Valtherbos forest, where 16 Jewish people hid from Nazi soldiers in the Second World War.
For more information, check out the Connect International website. Registration is required, and perhaps unsurprisingly, anyone with Coronavirus symptoms should not attend.
