The cultural heritage in the Westerkwartier is -in contrast with other heritage in the Netherlands- immediately visible.
It is about the traces from the past, which are present bothvisible and tangible. Monuments including mills, churches and urban structures in relation to the landscape, such as the mounds. But also archives, museums and archaeological objects and the accompanying stories, and habits.
Also visible are the differences of heritage when looking at the clay, sand or peat. The Westerkwartier covers enough heritage to explore.
