Ommen, a place hidden between the woods and the shores of ‘de Vecht’. An old hanseatic city with a history so rich, a beautiful natural area and also a lively city centre.
The great heights of Ommen
You will not need any safety climbing belts but a descent pair of hiking shoes isn’t a bad idea. A reasonable good condition and love for nature that’s all is needed when climbing those ‘Rocky Mountains’ of Ommen. We definitely recommend climbing the Lemelerberg or Besthmenerberg to see the great views of Ommen. From the top of the high mountains of Ommen you will see people canoeing the river ‘de Vecht’ while other water sport enthusiasts explore there way through het vechtdal. You can pay a visit to Vilsteren by bike, which is a beautiful village known for his country estates. There is also the opportunity to walk by farms in Beerze or to pay a visit to the lands of the forestry commission, the provence of Overijssel or nature reserve.
