The Drenthe Cup is held at a large sports venue less than 1.5 kilometres from the centre of Meppel. Meppel (33,000 inhabitants) is a colourful provincial town in the rural north of the Netherlands. From drinks on the terrace in the town centre’s breathtaking 15th-century church square to a cruise to neighbouring Giethoorn, Meppel is definitely worth a visit.


Giethoorn, 10 kilometres to the north-east of Meppel, is a unique spot in the Netherlands, thanks to its many bridges, canals and the 'punters' (typical Giethoorn boats). This is exactly why Giethoorn is also known as the 'Venice of the North'. The best way to see Giethoorn is to take a boat tour.

Bad Hesselingen is a large, covered, tropical pool paradise close to the centre of Meppel. There is a range of attractions, such as 5 slides, one of which is 50 metres long, jet streams and a wild water river. There is also a pool bar and a small restaurant.
