    What are some towns close to the German border that have good coffeeshops? Already been to Venlo.

    Venlo is not the nicest place to go IMO. Maastricht, Nijmegen, Arnhem and Groningen are much nicer.

    My favorite shop is right on the border a couple kilometers from the German border. It's in the town of Coevorden near Emmen. Emmen has coffeeshops too but Coevorden is closer, towns smaller, and shops nicer. The coffeeshop is called "Ankara." Has an inside and outside with two ponds, its really homie and great weed. It's about 50m from the center of Coevorden on the main road(which is more for people than cars) Heres all the shops in Drenthe, but the good Ankara isnt in Emmen, its in Coevorden.
