Forrest Spaarbankbos

Hoogeveen – 2,7km

The Spaarbankbos was once a wet heathland that formed a whole with the adjacent Boerenveensche Plassen. De Spaarbank from Hoogeveen bought the site in 1890 as an investment and planted forest for mining wood in Limburg. During the Second World War, a German ammunition transport exploded in the forest just before the liberation. The explosion had left quite a hole in the forest and trees were covered with shrapnel. As a result, the trees were no longer usable for wood production. The Spaarbank then turned it into a walking forest where the residents of Hoogeveen could walk.
