Dwingeloo, Diever, Geeuwenbrug

The beautiful village of Dwingeloo has a beautiful church, the Sint Nicolaaskerk. The onion-shaped spire is striking. Tradition has it that this is due to the 'Miss of Batinge'. She drove past the building site every day because she found the master builder very attractive. The master builder was seriously distracted by this and this meant a delay in the construction work. Her father, the 'drost' of Drenthe, therefore sent her on a journey. But before her departure she managed to tell the master builder what shape of spire she would like. On her return, she saw that the architect had fulfilled her wish and married him. The Miss of Batinge has been immortalised with her horse by sculptor Charles Henri de Vries.

Great stories can also be found in Diever, where the Shakespeare Theatre keeps the memory of this British writer alive. Performances are held in the open-air theatre in August and September. So who knows, if you cycle through the woods of the Drents-Friese Wold in the summer, you might just bump into the fairies Oberon, Titania and Puck from Shakespeare's play 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'...
