Eelde Things to Do
Museum de Buitenplaats
Museum 'De Buitenplaats'. Just south of the city of Groningen in the village Eelde.
Museum for figurative arts. Amazing architecture in the organic style. The building is integrated with the garden around it, one does not exist without the other.

Lia Laimböck had an exposition at this musem in 2002. www.lialaimbock.comRelated to:

The lake: All nite long
Lights on the boats reflecting in the water, happy campers talking, the city at the other city of the lake brightly illuminated, the scent of flowers....ooh can t wait till summer!
In summer the lake is swamped with boats, surf boards. It is just great to have an outing when the sun is about to set.
Eelde Warnings and Dangers
Not all that glitters
is gold....though this is one of the more expensive areas if you want to buy a house, strangely enough there are some run down houses along the lake.
Eelde Tourist Traps
Bring you own food!
If you are planning to spend some time at the lake and not willing to spend much money, better bring your picknick basket. Prices in any restaurant here are a bit overdone.
Unique Suggestions: You could do like us on a cold day: sit for a while waiting to be served and get warm.
Then, when the waitress just doesn t come, put your coat back on and walk out.
Fun Alternatives: On a cold day there s little alternative but to get back into the car, like we did.
But on a sunny day just sit at the lake and enjoy the view.
Eelde Sports & Outdoors
Walk one of the many
hiking trails. Some of these hiking trails go from the north to the south of the Netherlands.
These trails lead you through almost unspoiled nature.
