The Regge Region: The most wonderful place in the Garden of Holland
The province of Overijssel promotes itself as ‘Garden of Holland’. Just like in your own garden, you can discover a lot here. You have probably already discovered your favourite spot in your own garden. Let’s try to discover your favourite spot in the Garden of Holland: The Regge region.
Wonderful, varying landscape
The Regge region is a great relief and constant surprise at the same time. Sappy meadows with peacefully grazing cows, surrounded by the typical regional wooded banks alternate with uncultivated peats with flocks of sheep, rolling moors which colour the world purple in August and forests in which you can make wonderful walking- and cycling tours and observe squirrels and deer.
For active holidaymakers
People who prefer peace and nature will be served hand and foot. The active holidaymaker will, however, love this region as well. There are many marked walking- and cycling routes which will lead you through the most wonderful areas. Riding, canoeing, covered wagon tour? Anything is possible. Ball shooting, picking strawberries, fishing in the clean, wellstocked, rippling water of the Regge river: there is something for everybody!
Art and culture
You should definitely go deeply into the culture and history of the Regge region. In castle De Oosterhof in Rijssen the old days are portrayed in a wonderful way. By the way, did you know that the city Rijssen was already occupied at the beginning of the Christian era? The discovery of tumulus, roman coins and urns remind us of it.
The good life in the Regge region
Meet the friendly people with their typical dialect. Sail with a real ‘Zomp’ over the Regge river, just like merchants used to do. Visit markets and cosy terraces. Welcome in the Regge region: the most wonderful place of the province of Overijssel.
