Discover Holland Day
This event was cancelled
This is your one chance to experience all the stereotypes about the Netherlands in one trip. Cheese, windmills, cows, flat land, water, dikes, you will see it all! We will visit a traditional cheese farm, where the farmer will explain the process of cheese making and let us have a taste of his own home made cheese. After this introduction we will make our very own Dutch cheese or butter.
Next stop is Kinderdijk (Children Dike), a small village famous for its many traditional Dutch windmills. Kinderdijk is on the UNESCOs World Heritage list and on this day you will definitely realize why. Walk around to view the row of mills, discover how they keep the Netherlands from flooding, take lots of pictures and have some lunch.
For the second half of the day we head towards Gouda. You might be thinking, where have I heard of Gouda before? That's right; MORE CHEESE! The city of Gouda is not only famous for its cheese, it's also renowned for its beautiful typical Dutch city center and its 15th century city hall. You can visit several historical buildings and buy some souvenirs to take home. All in all, this day trip will be a fun, informative and very cheesy experience you will not easily forget!
