Weerribben-Wieden National Park is the largest and most beautiful peat bog of Northwest Europe. Thanks to human hands cutting peat and reed, a unique landscape was created, full of lakes, waterways, reedlands, marsh forests and quaking bogs. Special animals and plants love it. Inhabitants and visitors enjoy the magnificent landscape and the pleasant villages.

Ronald and Tea van Assen from Bodegraven have rented a house at Villapark Weerribben for fifteen years in a row. They enjoy the small scale of the park, the nature and its central location. Ronald: “The provinces of Friesland, Drenthe and Flevoland are also easy to get to from Weerribben-Wieden. And of course, the local surroundings are amazing. For those from the Randstad, Weerribben-Wieden is a breath of fresh air. We can really rest and relax here. Also, as a writer, I find a lot of my inspiration here.”
