Drenthe (The Netherlands) - All kinds of everything - Part 1

by Björn Roose December. 31, 2018 285 views

In the previous posts I showed you a number of things to see in Drenthe: the hunebedden (1, 2, 3, 4 and 5), natural reserves (here, here and here), three open air museums (here, here and here), the easter fires, sheep and herds and the future. But there's more to see. In this last post for 2018 and in the next one (the first of 2019 and the last one about Drenthe) a number of those things:

- the old graveyard of Anloo

- a statue clearly inspired by the hunebedden

- a scene from Midsummer Night's Dream

- Wemeltje Kruit, a local of Gasselte that got eternal life in a statue

- and the Lebbestaok, a pole that is somewhere on the border between Peest and Zeijen and has always been there since a dead body was found there and nor Peest nor Zeijen wanted to pay for the funeral (a story dating back to at least the beginning of the 1600's).

You'll find all my Drenthe photos here on Pinterest.
