Bike and Bath
This T(R)IP leads you on your bike through the beautiful Oldambt after which you can relax in the thermal bath in Bad Nieuweschans.
Cycling in Oldambt is actually an experience in every season. The coleseed that blossoms in spring, the grain which waves in the summer, the black plowed clay fields in the fall or in the winter – then you're lucky – the snow that covers the landscape in complete white.
Afterwards, relax in the wellness and spa resort Fontana Bad Nieuweschans.
During the bike ride of 34 kilometers (about 2.5 hours cycling) you drive through the polder. Thanks to the junctions it makes it easy to shorten or extend the route. Afterwards, relax in the wellness and spa resort Fontana Bad Nieuweschans.
The bike tour starts at Fontana Bad Nieuweschans and you drive through Nieuw Statenzijl and Finsterwolde to Nieuw Beerta. Highlights are the bird observatory Kiekkaaste, Udema’s Mill Ganzedijk, nature area the Tjamme with Scottish highlanders, the church of Nieuw Beerta and many monumental farmhouses.
The junctions are 26, 23, 22, 21, 20, 76, 19, 18, 25 en 26.
Back in Bad Nieuweschans you check in at Fontana. Here you can relax in the bath and you come to yourself in the calm pavilion. Or take extra time and visit the sauna square or book a body or facial treatment. You need to book your treatment in advance.
