Trip to Lauwersmeer National Park

Connect International Event in Groningen

Date: Sunday 1 November 2020 at 12:15 hrs

Location: Border Groningen-Friesland

Members Price: Free!

Non-Members Price: €5,00


After our first successful trip to the sand dunes and forests of Drenthe, this time, we will explore the seaside of Groningen. The National park Lauwersmeer is located right at the border to Friesland. The Lauwersmeer is a man-made lake that formed when a dike between the Lauwers Sea and the Wadden Sea was closed in 1969. After that, a unique flora and fauna could develop on the former tidal ground. Today, this area is famous amongst bird watchers.

Our trip will start at the Activiteitencentrum Lauwersnest which provides a lot of information about the national park. From there, we follow the “Observatietorenroute”, the observation tower route. On this 6.5 km route, we can enjoy the distinct flora as well as many birds and konik horses that live here all year. We will finish our trip again at the Activiteitencentrum Lauwersnest, close to the bus station De Rug, Lauwersoog.
