Things To Do

What can you experience?

Talk to a master carver as he creates his art. Watch the miller grinding flour in De Molen, if you’re keen to climb the stairs. Chat with the historian who starts up the quirky, noisy flax stripper machine that’s a century old.

Watch old-time technology in action. Or, lavish out on some tasty Dutch foods and great coffee. Taste the good things in life. On most Sundays, you can even take the family for a ride in a horse drawn buggy.
