Discover the Hondsrug

What you do during your visit to the Hondsrug UNESCO Global Geopark depends on your own interests. Wander through a museum and let yourself be transported back in time? Spend a day cycling with the children and swimming in a woodland pond, followed by ice cream and freshly-made pancakes? Lovers of geology and archaeology should certainly not miss out on visiting some of the local Geopark hotspots. Or are you a sporty type who prefers horse-riding, mountain biking or paddling?
