We recommend to visit the following places in the environment of De Huttenheugte
Drenthe HunebeddenBack to the list
Near to Center Parcs De Huttenheugte lies the 'Hunebedden Highway'. The Highway snakes its way across the province of Drenthe, and is full of so-called 'dolmens' or 'megalithic tombs'. These are impressive, silent and ancient remants of the people who lived in the Netherlands some five thousand years earlier. The enormous boulders originate from Sweden and Finland. During the ice age, they drifted, via enormous glaciers, all the way to Drenthe. Our prehistoric ancestors used the dolmens as tombstones for their dead. In the Hunebed Centre in Borger, thanks to film, multimedia and life-sized maquettes, you can relive the times of the mysterious prehistoric builders of the dolmen. The Hunebed Centre lies next to the biggest dolmen in the Netherlands.
Dolmens are some 15 km from Center Parcs De Huttenheugte, the Hunebed centre lies some 35 km away.
