Wooden Shoe Factory
Next to the parking lot you can find the Wooden Shoe Factory.
Here you can see a local traditional clogmaker, who will demonstrate how a simple block of wood can be transformed into a wooden shoe in minutes To make the clogs, we use old machines from the 1930s.We even got a working steam engine from 1913 to power the clogmakingmachines the old fashioned way. You can take a look in our wooden shoe museum with all kinds of old or remarkable clogs.
