The development of Drenthe really started in the twentieth
century. The present province was for centuries referred to within
the constitution as 'a landscape', and for this reason did not even

because of its peace and quietness and its open spaces, not only for
holidays, but also as an area to live and work in.
In particular, the beautiful scenery with stretches of woodland and
forest in ever-changing density, the moors covered in purple heather,
the fens and the charm of the villages with their typical farming
aspects, are all highly beloved and appreciated. The province is closely
