stage 5 - Frisia Coast Trail (FCT)
Stage 5 - Lauwers river to Ems river. Hiking from the estuary of the Lauwers river through the Ommelanden in the north and east of the province of Groningen to end this chapter at yet another estuary, the Dollard of the Ems river. Here a terp (mound) is called a wierde and the Ommelanden wheels around the Hondsrug, a leftover ridge of the last ice age and inhabited with Saxons of origin. Looking across the Dollard, is East Friesland, Germany.
