Under the cultural landscape of the Oldambt we mean the open polder landscape with the ribbon devellopment, the monumental farms with gardens with winding paths and other characteristic or valuable buildings like mills and churches. But also the workers cottages are important. Furthermore, the successive reclamations by means of dykes. Especially the openness of the landscape with its views and qualities as peace, space, darkness and a clean environment are typical for this region.
Near The ‘ Hamrikkerhof ‘ are various recreational opportunities for cyclists and hikers. You can visit the mansions Ennemaborg or Fraeylemaborg, galerie ‘De Groninger Kroon’. Of course, you can also relax at Spa Fontana in Bad Nieuweschans. Also the Dollard route for cyclists is situated nearby.
