Weekly Postcard / Photo Friday: a weekly post with a picture that I love, of a place that is worth highlighting.
The photo above contains a Hunebed, or dolmen in English. It is a neolithic tomb of which many can be found in Drenthe. Drenthe is province in the North of the Netherlands. They have been around for thousands of years. In old times they used to be covered by earth, with a small entrance in the side. Borger, a town in Drenthe (picture above was taken in Borger), has a museum dedicated to the Hunebeds.
How to get there
The Hunebeds are scattered around Drenthe, and a few are in other provinces. Best way to visit them is by bike. Either go to Borger or another town in Drenthe and rent some bicycles. You can visit most by car as well, prepare for some off road driving though.
What to do
There is not much to do at the Hunebeds themselves apart from seeing them. The best part is the bike ride (or car drive) through the Drenthe country side. In Borger you can visit the museum (Hunebedcentrum).
