  • Zeerijp, reformed church or Jacobuskerk

    Zeerijp is a small village some 22 kilometres to the east of Groningen. Not much to see or do in this village, except a visit to the windmill and the impressive church. At certain days a year one can go up on the vaults.For more info on this church go to www.virtualtourist.com/OlafS or the website mentioned below...

    A small manor in a breathtaking landscape. The manor itself is just nice to have a look at yet it is situated at the Reitdiep river close to some old sluices (Aduarderzijlen), I have added a link to my page on the sluices here below.

  • Schaaphok, close to Lageland

    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

    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.
