Area | Abdij de Westerburcht has a central location in Drenthe and is located in the centre of the touristic village Westerbork. It is surrounded with beautiful nature; ideal for cycling and walking. Care for a short walk? Go to the heath that is just outside the village. The former Transit Camp of Westerbork is 13 kilometres away. The camp is also easy to reach by bike with a route through the forest (available for free at the reception). Orvelte, a museum village, is proven to be one of the five most beautiful villages according to ANWB. Go there by bike or by foot with one of our routes. You can also choose the route by yourself with an extensive node map. Westerbork is located on a short distance from Assen, Hoogeveen, Emmen and the national park 'Dwingelderveld'. However, a city such as Groningen is just a half an hour away.
