For nature lovers, De Havixhorst is the ideal, stylish starting place. Nature starts in the backyard of our leafy estate, just beyond the neat castle gardens: the idyllic Reestdal. The meandering river patiently makes its way through a 1,000-year-old cultural landscape. A little further: the state forest Staphorst, the wetland National Park Weerribben-Wieden, the Havelterberg, known for the dolmens, and the Dwingelderveld. Purebred natural and cultural heritage of our province Drenthe. It is a wonderful playing field for anyone who likes walking, cycling or mountain biking.
