Emmen - idyllic holidays by the lakeside

A small municipality in the Drenthe province, Emmen is located in the northeast of the Netherlands, not far from the German border. While on holiday in Emmen, you should take time to learn more about this green region and its soil. In the middle of dolmens dating from the ice age, a walk on the Hondsrug heathland combines history, culture and nature. The region also has 21 green routes which present the environment and typical landscapes of Drenthe in an engaging way.

Set on the banks of De Grote Rietplas lake, in the natural area in Drenthe, the Sandur park offers spacious detached cottages with an outdoor area by the lakeside. During a holiday with your children in Emmen, you can make the most of the lake by going swimming, fishing or paddle boating. In the evenings during your weekend in Emmen, head to the Centre park where there are several restaurants offering a wide variety of meals and a fun and friendly live music show.
The Sandur park can be enjoyed by couples and families alike. Adults can practise their swing on the 9-hole golf course located next to the village, while children enjoy the Emmen leisure park. A mini-farm and several play areas await them. The Emmen water park has a large swimming pool, small paddling pool for children and aqua aerobics classes for the whole family. You can also swim in the lake or go for long cycles on the cycle paths in the village.

10 minutes from Sandur park is Emmen animal park, one of the most famous ones in the Netherlands. Make the most of your family holiday in Emmen by visiting the outdoor park where animals roam around, separated from visitors by simple ditches, and the indoor area of 17,000m² with a shark aquarium, butterfly garden and a museum about the history of life on earth. You can also plan active holidays in the Netherlands and opt for a tree-top adventure course in the Gieten-Borger forest.
