Nature in Overijssel

Most of Overijssel is a diverse icy delta with sandy soil and low hills, which were originally covered with heather, forest patches and wet marshy meadows. At one time, areas of high peat stretched to the northeast. To a large extent, the coastal zone north of Zwolle consists of low peat, partially covered with clay. This north-western part is mainly a pasture supporting cattle and dairy production; in the sandy areas there is milk production as well as mixed agriculture. The central Saland district has orchards.

The province became highly industrialized. The Twente district in the southeast, where cotton spinning, weaving and bleaching came to the fore in the 19th century, is one of the main centers of the Dutch textile industry. The main centers are Enschede, Almelo, Hengelo and Oldenzaal. Other important industrial centers are Deventer, Kampen and Zwolle.

The Weerribben Wieden National Park covers two areas with a total area of 100 square meters. Approximately 20 minutes drive from the north of Zwolle, this beautiful place offers many stunning natural landscapes that you can explore and an abundance of wildlife. Species found here include waterfowl, sunflower, blackfish and northern pike. Explore this beautiful park by bike along the many bike paths that run through the fields, or take the water and explore the canals and lakes of the canoe.

One of the largest public parks in Zwolle, Engelse Werk is a pleasure to see and is a great place to walk and enjoy the fresh air. Built in 1828, this park is in the style of an English landscape park and was designed by Hendrik van Lunteren. Much of this park is covered with beautiful woodland, but there are also several small lakes and waterways to explore. Stroll along the main trails, enjoy nature and wildlife and explore the old remains of fortifications that can still be seen.

National Park Sallandse Heuvelrug is a national park in the Dutch province of Overijssel, located between the towns of Hellendorn and Holten. Heuvelrug Sallandse is a moraine formed during the penultimate glaciation, Saalien, 150,000 years ago. In the Holocene, forests began to develop, but with an increase in population, these forests were cut down. Since the Middle Ages, this area has been used for grazing sheep and goats, and the topsoil has been removed to be used as fertilizer for crops. During this period, due to the drift of sand, the area turned into a wasteland. In the early 20th century, the state began forestry programs to prevent erosion and produce pine wood. The area is well known for its landscapes due to its relatively large wastelands.

The most characteristic features of the national park are the topography and the cranberries grow in large numbers. We also find the last Dutch population of black grouse(Tetrao tetrix), nightjar(Caprimulgus europaeusnightjar), and several species of lizards such as the viviparous lizard(Zootoca vivipara). The park has numerous trails for walking, cycling, mountain biking and horse riding. It is an important area for long distance hiking and cycling, and there are many campgrounds, restaurants and hotels.
