If your heading to the netherlands you may think that the Red Light District and smoking weed is the thing to do and the place to be. But here's the catch. Cheese and Clogs! That is where it's at! Amazing cheese, amazing demonstrations and amazing people. Loved it here!

Visited this shop, after it was highly recommended from a local resident. Aside from the demonstration on how the many cheeses are made, you get to sample them and purchase the various types they have. In addition, they also have clog-shop and they also have the demonstration on how the shoes are being made. This is not yet very tourist-oriented,... More

This is an excellent place to stop for clog and cheese demos and also to buy some cheese or souveniers. It is a bit out of the touristy centre of Volendam, and the cheese is much better priced than in the town.

We were in the Netherlands on a short David Urquhart Coach tour. Having spent the previous two days in Amsterdam we were on our way to Volendam for a few hours prior to going on to Imudjen in order to catch our ferry back to the UK. Our driver told us that whenever he was in the area he routinely... More

I had read about this place on a tripadvisor forum so when we passed it on the main road from Edam to Amsterdam we had to stop. It's a cute shop with all kinds of cheese, souvenirs and lots of clogs. The owner, Jeroen, gave us a demonstration of how they used to hand carve the clogs. In perfect English,... More

demonstrations are given in clog making (in a very amusing) manner and cheese making. A nice shop where you can buy clogs and cheese, it also has the usual tourist gifts.

I had the opportunity to visit this place with a local guide. We were given a very detailed demo of the cheese making tradition and also witnessed how the famous Dutch clogs are produced. Once these are over, you are ushered into their lovely shop where you are offered different types of Dutch cheese and a little drink. Then you... More

Loved the demo, good for all ages. Well organised as well. I found cheese and clogs were overpriced. If they keep them at a slightly less price they would sell a lot more. A must, I would say, if you are visiting Holland

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.
