|Mango at Bourtange|
Bourtange is a star shaped fortress and village dating from the eighty years war between 1568 and 1648. At the time it was militarily important and guarded the only road between Germany and Groningen. Now it's a living museum.

the Netherlands, including Bourtange.
|The pub with no beer. Again.|
A very pleasant ride through lovely countryside.
Note the siren sounds in the video. If your holiday coincides with the first Monday of the month then you may well hear sirens at mid-day. It's nothing to be alarmed about, they're just tested once a month.
