The village Ulrum
Ulrum is a lively village, situated in the north-west of the province of Groningen, in the municipal de Marne, close to the Waddenzee and Campsites.
Ulrum has a history that stretches far back. This can be seen because the center of Ulrum is located on and around a mound. At the highest point of the mound the Dutch Reformed Church is located since the Middle Ages (approx. 1225). This church, restored to its original state, is certainly worth a look at specialy the interior. In and around this church in 1834 the separation of the from Dutch Reformed Church occurred. This division created a few years later the Reformed Churches in the Netherlands.
Until the early 19th century Ulrum had a large borough/castle The Ansingaborg. Unfortunately the 'borg' has been broken down. But the place now has since a few years a beautiful garden. Where one can enjoy great hiking and nature.
Ulrum is at the Hunsingo canal , which the village is also easily accessible for watersports. The horse riding school (at the Hunsingo canal) has a shower and toilets for water sports. The campsite as located next to the canal and one can also rent canoes, this is a small campsite. Furthermore Ulrum has a horse riding school, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a large sports complex and a go-karts track.
Around Ulrum you can go cycling on rural roads and a large number of dedicated bike paths that cross the countryside.
In the center you will find a generous supply of various shops, a petrol station, post office and the ATM machine are located at the local supermarket. Every Wednesday morning there is a large street market.
