The Netherlands are wonderful and from Ruinerwold you can visit a lot of sights worth seeing in only 30 minutes, taking a journey that might even take you back through time.
In 1925 the Dokter Larijweg road was constructed to replace the old road that would cross the trenches with rickety bridges. To honour the occasion, a thousand peer trees were planted all along the road. On the first Saturday of October the plentiful harvest is sold at auction during the Pearpickingfestival.
The Dokter Larijweg runs parallel to the Weidenweg, 3 kilometers to the north. Along this road you will also find the Karstenhoeve from 1680, which serves as both museum farm and tourist infocentre.
Aside from that Ruinerwold offers a variety of peculiar shops, like Opoes Erfenis, the smallest grocer in the Netherlands, or De Olde Fietse a model farm where the antiques and curiosities will definitely delight many a soul.
3 km to to the south you will find the Lokkerij, and make sure to walk past the old manor De Havixhorst. And did you know that people come all the way from Belgium to visit fashion house Modewereld Van de Belt. There is not a lot of department stores that can claim that. A relaxed afternoon of shooping or relaxing in the newly built restaurant. Make your trip complete by taking a detour up to Echten, where you can visit an actual sod hut for yourself.
If you are coming by car then a fifteen-minute drive will take you to Frederiksoord which offers an interesting insight into the past Society of Beneficience.
Within 15 kilometers you will also find the towns of Meppel, Staphorst and Hoogeveen.
