Op Hoogte Gedacht bicycle route

Set out on your bike and take in art on churchyards

Serene or slightly spooky? Whichever, churchyards always exude a special atmosphere that combines perfectly with visual art. The Op Hoogte Gedacht project features works of art in Groningen churchyards. Two bicycle routes take in this art and the magnificent churches next to the churchyards.

From Obergum to Wierhuizen

Paving stones that have fallen over, or is it art? This 46-kilometre bicycle route starts and ends at the work of art located beside the Obergum church in Winsum. Another three intriguing works of art can be found on the churchyards of Zuurdijk, Vierhuizen and Wierhuizen. The Wierhuizen church was demolished a long time ago, but there actually still is a church here. Let this info work into your brain for a bit. Cycle back to Obergum via Pieterburen and Eenrum, both lively villages with various bars, caf├ęs and restaurants.
