In the Dwingelderveld there are more than fifty bogs and fens, around which a rich and special flora and fauna has developed. For example, you may encounter woodpeckers, buzzards, hawks, vipers, grass snakes and deer. For connoisseurs, the highlight of a visit to Dwingelderveld is the sight of the rare peat moth. Despite the many fens and wet heaths, Dwingelderveld is easy to explore on foot or by bicycle. Paths have been built over some of the bogs so that you walk half a meter above the water. You can also visit the sheepfold used for the two flocks of sheep that maintain the nature reserve.
