Langs het voormalige kamp Westerbork, het Hingsteveen en de radiosterrenwacht loopt het Melkwegpad.

Langs deze wandelroute staan de fascinerende wereld van het heelal en de grootste radiotelescopen van Europa centraal. Jong en oud leren spelenderwijs over de werking van de radiotelescopen, de Melkweg en ons zonnestelsel.

De wandelroute loopt tussen de parkeerplaats van Herinneringscentrum Kamp Westerbork en de voet van de Westerbork telescoop.
