Restaurant
“A kilometer outside the center, the kind of place where you might find yourself in the midst of a wedding party. Changes hands all the time, but keeps up a constant, middle-of-the-road quality.”

Restaurant
“Advertises itself as the biggest wok restaurant in Europe, and you can believe it. It offers lavish buffets with Chinese, Japanese and Indonesian dishes, as well as basic European food. There is a low flat fee. Chinese food is the mainstay, with chefs from China cooking to individual order. The best night is Monday. Most Chinese restaurants in the country are closed that day, and the owners like to bring their families to De Mallejan for a special treat, so the restaurant does its very best.”

“This rough fortification from 1880 is part of the Nieuwe Hollandse Waterlinie -1815-1940-, an important line of defense in Dutch history. 46 forts over a length of 85 km between Muiden and the Biesbosch guarded and if necessary the polders inundated to a height of 40 centimeters so that the enemy with horses and vehicles could barely push through. The fort is VVV Information Point and base of the Dutch sole polder keeper Marcel Blekendaal. Forester without forest but with meadows. Marcel likes to take you through his "polders" where he tells beautiful exciting stories with a pole in his hand on clogs. Book a tour with Marcel? Then look at polderwachter.nl.”
