Day Trip to Assen
Note: If there are no more spots available, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will add you to the waiting list and contact you if someone cancels registration.
Have you always wanted to explore the rest of the North but don’t know where to start? We know where to start: Assen! Let’s explore Drenthe’s beautiful capital city together during our next Day Trip outing!
Many of us pass through Assen by train when traveling elsewhere, but have you ever taken the time to actually go out and explore the city? We think it’s time to put Assen on the map again. With its recently beautifully renovated train and bus station as our starting point, we will explore the city together on foot first and we’ll discover what Assen has to offer. Around noon, we’ll have lunch at one of the cafés or restaurants on the south side of the canal (Vaart ZZ). After lunch, we’ll make our way to the renowned Drents Museum, which recently launched a special exhibition about the life of famous Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh during his time in Drenthe.
