Cycle route through royal Oranjewoud
Heerenveen, Oranjewoud, Wolvega
Oranjewoud, between Wolvega and Heerenveen, is a royal forest. Between the long avenues and stately trees are various former estates, interspersed with small meadows and water features. At the place where former stadholders had a beautiful palace built, there is now the beautiful country estate Oranjewoud. A little further on is the Landgoed Oranjestein, a country estate with a romantic garden. If you are lucky, you can visit the gardens and wander around in the old days. But even from a distance, the estates are beautiful to see.
Oranjewoud is a place where new and old come together, and this becomes clearly visible when you cycle a little past the estates. Between the meadows, a large modern building suddenly appears. The Belvédère Museum, which was opened by Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, is a special place where you can admire various exhibitions of modern art.
Continue your cycle route through the hinterland of Heerenveen and enjoy the Frisian nature and culture.
