If You want to relax in peace or enjoy a sports activity - a good area to visit. Boating on the Lauwersmeer or "wadlopen" all possible within short distances.

A great place to tour around the lake and so some bird watching, hiking and biking. It has numerous spots with beautiful sights. Don't forget to eat fish at the harbor and also visit Anjum.

Take the train from the Main Station to Grijpskerk. Here it is about 10 km to Zoutkamp; the Lauwersmeer.
