Tourist Transfer Point
A TOP (Tourist Transfer Point) marks the start of various signposted routes for hiking, biking, horseback riding, or taking a scenic drive. A TOP can be recognised by a large cone that is filled with boulders. Furthermore, you will find an information panel, seats, and a guidepost. For orientation purposes, you will find a map with all the signposted routes that are located around the TOP on the information panel. Some routes start directly from the TOP; the guidepost indicates the direction you should take. Cycling and car routes that are a bit further away are also indicated on the map. These might inspire you to cycle a little further or to combine routes.
TOP Veenhuizen is an ideal starting point from which you can experience the past and enjoy nature. Prison village Veenhuizen has many monuments that each carry a special story in them. The time of vagrants, beggars, orphans, and foundlings has passed, but there's still something exciting about Veenhuizen.
From this TOP, you can take a walk along the various monuments or a take a bike ride, either to the protected bog area in the Fochteloërveen or through the wooded area of Norg.
TOP Veenhuizen is locates at the parking lot of the Prison Musuem
