Ter Apel

Explore the centre

The Ter Apel canal cuts right through the charming village centre and is fringed with various shops, varying from large store chains to mostly small and special shops to provide that ‘Couleur Locale’. The village centre is also where activities and events are held. Naturally, you will find plenty of tearooms and restaurants for a drink or bite to eat.

Explore the countryside

Ter Apel has more on offer than its beautiful castle and lovely shops: located in a green area, there’s lots more to explore. The monastery is surrounded by the Kloosterbossen woodlands, home to huge, impressive old oak and beech trees. Alternatively, choose a trail through the Ruiten Aa stream valley just outside the village. Wherever you turn, there is always a new sight to take in.
