De Frije Wiken is a beautiful, diverse and almost undiscovered area with forests, heather, water and broad views.

You will find mills, belfries, sluices, old churches, museums and many other sights.

Many routes are mapped out in the area and on the last Saturday of September there is the Flaeijelfeest in Nieuwehorne, a unique countryside event in the theme of a day from the past.
