Saturday activities

For Saturday we would like to offer an ‘intertidal guided tour’ in the Wadden sea. This is a unique and – depending on your liking – a relaxing or sportive experience. The Wadden sea is a world heritage area and offers you an exceptional experience of the local nature. We start by bus from Groningen (at 8 o’clock) and go to the sea (Noordpolderzijl). From there we take a walk in the Wadden sea. Those who are less daring can go for a walk along the dyke or sit in a nearby coffee.

Afterwards we will visit the Menkema Borg ( http://www.menkemaborg.nl/en/ ) one of the picturesque aristocratic homes in the north of Groningen. It is a lovely country manner with enchanting gardens.

For this trip you are advised to bring appropriate cloths and footwear. Including a windjacket, and shoes that sit tight enough so that you cannot loose and that can get dirty. It would also be advisable to have short trousers for the walk in the Wadden sea.

The price will be determined once we know the approximate number of participants. Please indicate your interest in taking part in this tour by e-mailing us.

What else to do around Groningen:
Near the German border in the beautiful surroundings of Westerwolde (Southeast Groningen), you will find the fortress of Bourtange. A unique historical defenses of 1742 which is without comparison. In this small, cosy fortress town, the present day and past centuries go together perfectly.

The nowadays visitors of Bourtange feel like going centuries back, meeting the fortress in his blooming years.
