Of the 11 nature areas in the province of Groningen the Lauwersmeer National Park is the most special. More than 100 bird species breed in this wilderness of water, islands, woods, reed beds and rough grasslands. Also very special ones like the spoonbill, stiltcock, phalarope and sea eagle! But you will also find herds of wild horses and cattle.
You can walk, cycle or sail beautifully in this area.
Het Lauwersnest, activity center of Staatsbosbeheer, is full of information about the area. Sign up for a tracking excursion or a night walk with the forester. Lauwermeer National Park has been declared a Dark Sky Park, here it is really dark at night….
