Frederiksoord Estate - Frederiksoord
The area around Frederiksoord unites nature and culture. Beautiful forests and moors interspersed with pasture and arable land that blend seamlessly into the landscape. Thirty-five Provincial and National Monuments tell the story of the Colonies of Benevolence, founded to provide urban paupers with a view to a better life in the specially established agricultural colonies. A special social experiment that has not gone unnoticed: the legacy of founder Johannes van den Bosch is on the way to a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
