Drentse history of peat: Veenpark in Barger-Compascuum
In the Veenpark in Barger-Compascuum you will discover everything about the peat history of the province of Drenthe. Time seems to have stood still as you drive and sail through nostalgic villages. In addition, there is a natural high moor area where peat is still being excavated. Every day you can see the peat cutter at work and the same applies to the baker, the clog maker and the grocer. There is also much to see and experience for children. In short, a visit to this beautiful Veenpark is great fun for everyone.
