    Biking - De Marne Route

    by vtveen Written Jun 25, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In my opinion biking is the best way to explore the countryside of Groningen. Of course you can do it on your own, but there are a lot of signposted routes like De Marne, Reitdiep and Waarden Route. Ask at your hotel or in one of the Tourist Information Centres and I'm sure they will help you.

    We followed the Marneroute, signposted by the ANWB and it was easily to find our way. This bicycle route is 32 km’s long and can be started from every point along the route. Perhaps the most convenient point to start is the village of Eenrum. It is possible to rent bikes in Winsum, 5 km’s from Eenrum, at ‘Tweewielerhuis Poort’ - Lombok 17, (tel. 0595-441662).

    The Marne area is situated in the north western part of the province of Groningen and called after a former island. It is now dotted with small villages, meandering streams and some beautiful ‘borgen’ (fortified mansions). Most of the villages are built on a so called ‘wierde’; a man made hill to protect the inhabitants from the sea.

    Highlights along the route are;
    - the village of Eenrum;
    - Borg Verhildersum;
    - Seal Centre/hospital in Pieterburen;
    - the impressive scenery of rural Groningen.

    Valom.

    by nighthawk Written Mar 23, 2005

    Valom, drop down in English, is but some houses and farms but I just love it because it so typical for this part of the province.
    And of course the name, haha, gotta find who came up with that thought!
    Don t drive too fast when approaching, you might be passed it before you realize it ;-).

    Former church of Schaaphok

    by nighthawk Updated Oct 9, 2003

    Since Schaaphok is no more than some farms and houses, there s no congregration that still goes to church. It was built in 1905 and for long it has been a private home now.

    Schaaphok, close to Lageland

    by nighthawk Written Oct 9, 2003

    Schaaphok ... in English that would mean sheep pen ...haha thinking Caddy now, can t help myself, sorry girl! :-) ..... too bad there were no sheep and no pen ....that s why we settled for this ... drive thru pics ;-)
    In the old days a sheep pen of the manor Fraeylema in Slochteren was here, that is why this place is called Schaaphok.

    Lageland, east of the city of Groningen

    by nighthawk Written Oct 9, 2003

    Lageland, translated it means something like low land. Nothing more than a road along a canal and some houses and an iron bridge, called 'De IJzeren Klap' (ijzeren means iron) and 'klap' is a Groninger word for bridge.

    Lageland, province of Groningen

    Just a mark on the map. Very rural.
    The farm where I buy my weat and such is to the left. It is located along the Peizerdiep, and this always makes a good cycling trip.

    Little village known for its mill and the cafe 'Het roode hert' (The red deer).
