I enjoyed their clog making demo, which was very impressive. Their clogs are of excellent quality and some look modern & are orthopaedics certified, so go get 'em! Cheese tasting available for free. The cheese are cheesily gewddd. My favourite is the peppered cheese.

When you travel through the Netherlands some stops are a must! Cheese and clogs in the Netherlands are like hot dogs and apple pie in America. Take some time to stop and see how both cheese and clogs are make and if inclined you can purchase both! The cheese lasts a long time and is a great gift!

We went here as part of a Contiki organised tour. My husband and I purchased 45euro worth of cheese. We sampled all of the cheese during our tour of the shop.

The clog-making demostration was great. The guy turned a block of wood into a clog in 5 minutes, using only hand instruments. The cheeses were good.
