    Poeproute

    Hahaha, I just find this a fun sign :-) I always wonder what they will think of next.

    This is what you have when you live in an overcrowded country; there is hardly any place to walk with your dog. So in Oldenzaal you have a special "poeproute" for your dog; a designated areas where you can take your dog for a walk. Bweh.... not so nice when you live close to one! Because all the dogs of the area go to this place. But the good news is that the city does clean up these areas very often, so the smell won't get too bad. Dogs also have to be on a leach when you take them for a walk.

    So you're warned when you take your dog on your travels with you.

    The parking meters!
    They are everywhere in the centre of town! So annoying, but it is like any other city in Holland, parking meters everywhere. So don't forget to always have some change with you when you come here by car.

    Escaping Oldenzaal By Train

    by johngayton Written Jul 18, 2010

    Oldenzaal's train connection to Hengelo is operated by the private company Syntus which means that the OV Chipcards are not valid for that section of any journey and a separate ticket is required.

    I didn't have a chipcard but the problem I encountered was that the ticket office in the station's restaurant wasn't open and the automatic machine on the platform didn't take Euro notes or any credit cards.

    This meant that when I wanted to go to Maastricht I had to buy a single ticket to Hengelo from the machine (2.50 Euros) and then buy my onward ticket once I'd arrived at Hengelo. The train conductor explained that I could have bought my ticket from her on the train but that would have been much more expensive as there is a penalty fare system for those boarding without a ticket.
