Cycle route Pieterpad (part 3)
Rolde, Schoonloo, Hooghalen
Two friends, Toos and Bertje devised and walked the Pieterpad between 1978 and 1983. A long-distance walking route (500 km) from Pieterburen in northern Groningen to Sint-Pietersberg in southern Limburg in 26 stages that are easily accessible by public transport and where you can stay overnight. The landscape along the way is hugely varied, but equally beautiful everywhere.
Where you can walk, you can also cycle, and we wouldn't be Fietsnetwerk if we didn't set out some great cycling tours for you inspired by the Pieterpad. We made 14 routes totalling almost 1,300 km along all the places on the Pieterpad. We did make circles of them so that you always return to your starting point. This is part 3 and leads from Rolde to Schoonloo.
You pass the Hiemstrastate estate and the Groote Zand nature reserve in Hooghalen, among other places.
For the cyclist who likes to add informative stepping-stones to his or her route, we have chosen three stepping-stones that you really don't want to miss. You will pass Remembrance Centre Camp Westerbork. In this museum, you get information about the lives of the camp's victims and survivors.
Another museum you can visit is the C+B museum. Here you will find a permanent exhibition about Cuby + Blizzards and Harry Muskee, but you can also view changing exhibitions here. Moreover, you pass by the Ceramic Gardens, where you can stroll through a huge garden to admire the various sculptures. You can also have lunch or a coffee break here.
