Assen Vacation Packages
Assen, a rather distant destination without major cities nearby, can be found 80 miles (129 kilometers) northeast of Amsterdam, the country's capital.
The culture of a community is what makes it special. Visit the Drents Museum to sense the spirit of the region.
Watch the FC Groningen as they play before cheering fans at Euroborg, which is situated 15 miles (24 kilometers) north of Assen. Long after the chanting ends, you might want to trail behind the people draped in green and white as they make their way to the closest bars.
Kamp Westerbork is frequently visited by sightseers and local community members.
Head to Borger, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) to the southeast of Assen. Here, you can explore the Hunebedcentrum and Hunebed D27. We also recommend stopping at Diever. The Hunebed D52 and Outdoor Shakespeare Theatre Diever are certain to be of interest while you're there.
Learn about the traditions of this region's culinary customs. Make your journey complete by heading to some local restaurants.
Trying the local cuisine can be an enriching experience. The most sought-after options here are erwtensoep (pea soup) and hutspot.
Rijstepap (rice pudding) is a lovely dessert that no visitor should miss.
If you're steering clear of alcoholic beverages, hot chocolate and whipped cream is a delightful complement to any dining experience.
Purchase some Beerenburg, a popular alcoholic beverage in this area.
An excellent way to impress the locals is to learn their language, so brush up on some elementary Dutch expressions. Build up slowly, and begin with "Wilt u met me dansen?", a popular phrase that means "Would you like to dance with me?" Also, knowing "Waar kom je vandaan?", which means "Where are you from?", will be another useful tool to have up your sleeve.
If you're prone to feeling sentimental about Drenthe, circle the 26th of April in your planner so you don't forget King’s Day, a national celebration.
Every getaway must finish, but your fond memories of Assen will last long after you say, "Dag."
9 miles (14 kilometers) to the north is Assen's nearest major airport, Eelde Airport.
