    Ommen, like many other town and village, also has it's budget for art objects. In the central square of Ommen, the market (Markt), are a few that are made for Ommen at it's 750 anniversary in 1998 (since 1248 the town has cityrights). Artist Iris Le Rutte symbolised three historical figures of Ommen, of which in the picture the "Goat on the Egg" and the "Black Horse", are legendary ones. If anyone can tell me about these legends, it would make me very happy. On the internet I couldn;t find proper information.

    A place that is popular by Dutch camping lovers

    The whole Vecht valley is very popular by Dutch people that like to camp out (and believe me ... many Dutch love to camp, just ask the Germans about Dutch caravans - haha). Many Dutch also choose holidays in their own country, especially when they have young children and travelling long distances is not recommended. When you drives around the Ommen surroundings, you will see many signs pointing out to campingrounds and/or bungalow parks / holiday homes. Both types of holiday are popular and also attract many Germans into the Netherlands.
