Recreation center de Kluft is beautifully located in Ossenzijl

On the border of Friesland and Overijssel, in the heart of the Weerribben - Wieden National Park

The Weerribben National Park exists since 1992. In 2009, the De Wieden nature reserve and the Weerribben National Park were merged into one large National Park: Weerribben - Wieden. The total area is approximately 10,000 hectares, the largest continuous peat bog in northwestern Europe. The landscape is characterized by a great variety of water, reed beds, hay meadows and swamp forests. Many different plants and animals live in this area.


Sail towards sights

Two waters meet in Ossenzijl, the Kalenbergergracht and the Ossenzijl - Steenwijk canal, from where you can enter the water towards Giethoorn, Steenwijk and the Frisian lakes. 

Villages in the area are also worth seeing: Kalenberg, Oldemarkt, Blokzijl, Emmeloord and Wolvega. Waterreijk is the name of the entire region and shows you all the information and activities in the area.
