Emmen is a planned town close to the German border in the East Netherlands; it enjoys a road network that is second to none thanks to the intricate planning which went into Emmen’s construction since its inception. Every year these roads are host to Gouden Pijl, a bike race which has been won by some of the world’s top cyclists. Hire a car in Emmen to see its wondrous historical landmarks and places of interest, such as the gorgeous Great Church and an artwork named Broken circle/Spiral Hill, finished there in 1971 by the American artist Robert Smithson for an annual arts festival held in the town.
