Forests, meadows and farmlands make for a constant changing landscape, in which only small villages and farmhouses show the human presence.
Since 1985 the old town hall of Ommen is turned into a museum that houses over 200.000 cultural historic figures mad from tin. This is the Netherlands’ only national museum of ‘tin soldiers’. The museum is at walking distance from the group accommodations and a nice attraction for a rainy or cold day.
