Pieterburen is situated on the ‘Hogeland’ (high land) of northeastern Groningen. It is an area with brick Gothic churches, stately farms, and endless views over the land, all the way to the Wadden Sea.
Pieterburen is known for its Seal Rehabilitation and Research Centre, the vicarage garden Domiestoen, the old mill De Vier Winden (The Four Winds), and for mudflat hiking in the Wadden Sea. Its medieval castle, Huis ten Dyke, was torn down a century ago.
