Tradition in the village of Orvelte

Called a museum village in Dutch, the town of Orvelte in Drenthe takes you back in time with its classic farms, the old cars and the museums which are to be found throughout the town.

Walk through the main street and left and right you’ll notice the classic mail boxes, historical signs and the thatched roofs, all contributing to the relaxed atmosphere of a town where time seems to have stood still.

Already in the 14th century there is mention of the name Orvelte in the history books as the place where farmers started to settle and today you can still find many of the remainders of what has occurred since then.
