Noordijk used to be on the railway line Neede - Hellendoorn with Halte Noordijk. The track has been broken for years but the station building is still there.
Neede is a big place near Noordijk and therefore Noordijk is also called Noordijk - Neede. In Needer you will find the highest point of Berkelland, the Needse mountain, and a little further in the Achterveld are the last remaining wetlands of the Netherlands. This relatively large place is spread south of the N315 and is surrounded by meadows with a few small pieces of wood.
