Aekingerzand Observation Tower - Appelscha
Are you cycling through Drents-Friese Wold National Park and does your cycle route pass by Aekingerzand? Then swap your bike for the cart and climb the watchtower of the Aekingerzand. In popular speech, they also call this vast shifting sand area 'The Barren Dunes'. Why that is is something you will notice once you are on the sandy plain.
The wind has free rein and makes the sand drift in different directions. The area is constantly changing and this is easy to see if you climb the watchtower more often.
