    Canal "The Wijmers"

    Me skating

    Favorite thing:
    This is the canal the "Wijmers" that goes through the village of Loppersum.

    My best memories of this canal is going skating on it in the winter, and canoeing in the summer. But the thing I did the most was bike along side the canal. This was my route going to school, which was in Appingedam, and about 10 kilometers from Loppersum.

    In the picture you can see me skating on "The Wijmers" in Loppersum.

    Tulip fields

    Tulip fields in Groningen

    Favorite thing:
    Something you don't expect in the North of Groningen... but they are there! The tulip fields!!! Aren't they beautiful! I love them!

    I can't remember that the tulips fields were here when I was a child. But the agriculture in the area has changed somewhat, and there are a few farmers that grow tulips, which I find a great addition to the landscape.

    The windmill

    Windmill

    Favorite thing:
    This is my favourite spot in the village: the windmill. It is called "de Stormvogel" and it is a corn mill, built in 1849.

    Translated "Stormvogel" means "Storm bird" and I kind of like that name :-)

    The church

    The church of Loppersum

    Favorite thing:
    This is a picture of the church in the centre of the village. The church of Loppersum is the largest village church in the province.

    The oldest known church at this location was a tuff Romanesque building. A part of the old church can still be found at the north side, close to the transept. It was replaced in the 13th century by a Romano gothic cruciform church, of which the north wall and transept have survived. The nave was heightened in the first half of the 16th century. In the second half of that century the 13th-century choir was replaced by a new one with lateral chapels. Because of the southern chapel, it looks like the church has a double transept. Both transept and chapel on the south side have Gothic gables. In 1529 this side of the church was extended further with a side-aisle. The tower dates from the 14th century and has the saddle-roof typical for this region.

    This is historical info of the church is from this website:

    Old houses

    At the village of Zeerijp

    Favorite thing:
    This picture is not taken in the village itself but about 3 kilometres away, close to the village of Zeerijp. This is a very old house, dated back to around 1667. This is what I do love about the countryside of Loppersum, the lovely old farms and houses.

    Lagestraat in Loppersum

    Favorite thing:
    This is another view of the same canal in Loppersum. The street in the picture is the Lagestraat (The low street). When you follow this street it will turn into the Hogestraat (the high street) and at the end (vaguely visible in the distance) is the big church of Loppersum.

    Schipsloot in Loppersum

    Schipsloot in Loppersum

    Favorite thing:
    One of the picturesque little streets in Loppersum is the Schipsloot. On the left-hand of the canal is the Lagestraat, and on the right-hand is just a tiny street which is called Schipsloot. There are many old and small houses along this little street and canal. I think they all are in the typical style of building for this region.

    School

    Favorite thing:
    A last picture about Loppersum and a proof that not much has changed here. This is the school where I went as a little kid and it looks just the same as it did many years ago.
