04 Lauwerslandroute
Published: 11/01/2019
Lauwersland
The southern part of the Lauwersland route (near Buitenpost) leads just through the landscape of the Friese Wouden. But above Kollum the tree walls have disappeared and the landscape is open and wide.

This part of the Lauwersland is connected with the battle against the water. Old and new waterworks are visible everywhere: mounds - in Groningen were called - dykes, mills, pumping stations and locks. Terpen and wierden are artificial embankments starting from 500 BC. Were raised when the first inhabitants had to protect themselves against flooding in a still uncharted country.
Niehove and Ee are fine examples of terp villages. From the year 1000 the dikes came into vogue. Mills, pumping stations and locks led to the drainage of excess water. Dikes first served only as protection of the land against the sea. But in the course of time they were also used to reduce the sea and to win land through impoldering. To the west and east of the Lauwersmeer the route leads through extracted land. (source: Promoter No. 09-2015; Endangered ANWB routes).

Because I have not (yet) driven this route myself, I have rated this route with 3 stars!

About this route collection
You have certainly seen one of the 43 Endangered ANWB routes. When asked whether these can also be offered as 1 file, the MyRoute-app Team started to realize this user wish. You can see the result in this collection, among others.

The series of the 43 Endangered ANWB routes were published in the Promoter between April 2015 and September 2016. In the past, the routes were driven on the basis of the ANWB signs. These signs have disappeared from the streets with the arrival of the navigation systems.

All 43 routes have been checked and made the same for TomTom, Garmin and MyRoute-app Navigation by a RouteRpert MyRoute-app. The routes follow as much as possible the original route as it was made at the time.
The 43 routes start and / or end in one of the provinces of the Netherlands and occasionally also go a bit through Germany or Belgium.

The number of routes per province is as follows:
• Friesland: 5 routes
• Groningen: 4 routes
• Drenthe: 6 routes
• Germany: 1 route
• Overijssel: 4 routes
• North Holland: 2 routes
• South Holland: 3 routes
• Utrecht: 1 route
• Flevoland: 2 routes
• Gelderland: 4 routes
• Zeeland: 5 routes
