Head left from the Pier Christiaan Ditch to the Tjonger and experience the beauty of the marvelous nature. If you pay close attention, there is a high chance of observing a buzzard, peregrine, blue or brown harrier above the reed beds.
The Rottige Meente – the first inhabitants of the area already settled in the thirteenth century and build up a mostly poor life. Peat extraction still occurred here late 19th and early 20th century. Since the soil was very wet, it was not well-suited for farming (‘Rottige’ means ‘Rotting’).
From the starting point ‘De TjongerVallei’, you will set out on the Pier Christiaan Ditch, which runs into the Tjonger River. Going straight, underneath a concrete bridge, you will arrive at a wide part of the old Tjonger River. Here, you will be fully absorbed into the natural beauty, silence and tranquillity.
