Eernewoude, natuurgebied De Alde Feanen
|De Alde Feanen means The Old Fenlands in Frisian. Ancient peat plays the most important role in the history of this beautiful area. It has lakes, bog pools, narrow strips of land, reed lands, marshlands, rugged areas, thickets, swampy forests and expansive meadows. These form a beautiful cultivated landscape that has become a natural environment, with one of Western Europe's largest wetland areas – with an area of no less than 4,000 hectares – as its crowning glory.

De Alde Feanen National Park in the heart of Friesland offers a wide variety of landscape types, with many different plants and animals.
