In the surrounding of Amsterdam there are many beautiful Dutch villages which are definitely worth a

The cheese maker would love to show you how the tastiest Edam and Gouda cheese are being made.

You will come to know how cheese gets its flavour, what the difference is between old and matured

cheese, and you can taste and buy your favourite cheese.


Clogs and the Netherlands belong together. But how are these clogs made? The clog maker will

demonstrate this old Dutch tradition. In the shop you can try on some clogs and take part in the


Workshop making wooden shoes

The workshop starts in the clog factory with an explanation and demonstration of how wooden shoes

are made, as well as by hand as by machines. Afterwards you can make your own wooden shoe. All
