Coevorden ©
Coevorden is a municipality and a city in the northeastern Netherlands. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Coevorden: Emmen (Winkelcentrum de Weiert, Hunebed D45, &more), De Drentse Koe (in Ruinerwold) and De Luie Tuinman (in Ruinen). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Stedelijk Museum Coevorden, make a trip to Molen de Bente, have some family-friendly fun at Indoorkarting Hoogeveen, and find something for the whole family at Plopsa Indoor Coevorden.

To see more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Coevorden trip planner.

Cape Town, South Africa to Coevorden is an approximately 18- hour combination of flight and car. The time zone changes from South Africa Standard Time (SAST) to Central European Standard Time (CET), which is usually a -1 hour difference. Prepare for a bit cooler weather when traveling from Cape Town in April: high temperatures in Coevorden hover around 16°C and lows are around 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Assen.
