  • Nice little Dutch village with several mills and various shops (cheese, clogs, etc.). Therefore you should go early very many tourists. Admission is free, but parking will cost 10 euros. As a tip: On the other side of the bridge directly turn right behind the bakery can be parked free of charge unlimited!
