20 routes in the Westerkwartier

Groningen citizens are averse finery. You can see that in the landscape, taste it in their food and you can feel that when you meet them. The scenery is real. Greasy clay, authentic farm villages and grazing cows. The food is pure, often organic and from the region.

And the people? Who find the content more important than the packaging? That makes them happy and humble. This doesn’t mean that the authentic sense is lacking them. On the contrary. The 20 routes take you over winding roads to unique places.

Along the way you will experience how beautiful simplicity can be an how stylish modesty is. That is the strength of the Westerkwartier!
