Diakonievene - Nijerberkoop
The Diakonievene is a nature reserve that was used for the excavation of peat. The church care for the poor (diaconia) of Nijeberkoop did this to ensure that the poor people who lived there stayed warm in the winter. Today the area looks wonderful and consists of a number of beautifully situated ponds that are connected to each other. You will find the remains of a penguin ruin with a wooded drift wall and small pieces of heather. Get off your bike here for a relaxing walk through the Diakonievene, past the Catspoele and the Dellerboersterheide.
