Farm
“Also in town, Juffertje in 't Groen (4 minute drive, 9 minute bike ride) is a charming children's farm that often hosts seasonally themed events (Halloween hike, Christmas market, etc). There is giant indoor haystack that no kid can resist jumping into. There is also a small indoor petting zoo and stalls as well as outdoor farm to visit all sorts of different farm animals. There is also a cafe overlooking a playground for parents to unwind while the kids cut loose;-) ”
