Full description
Time to try on something that wouldn't normally be in your wardrobe: traditional Volendam wear, including warm baggy trousers for the men and a high, pointed bonnet for the ladies. And of course, no outfit would be complete without Holland's most famous footwear - clogs! Say 'cheeeessseee' and your professional photographer will snap a photo of you and your friends, a souvenir which you can show to everyone at home. After the photo shoot, you can enjoy a guided tour in which you learn how to make a typical Dutch Gouda or Edam cheese. In the clog factory, you will get the chance to see a piece of wood turn into footwear and learn about the different varieties of clogs. In the shop you can have a look at all kinds of souvenirs and taste Dutch biscuits such as stroopwafel, a delicious local fruit wine and of course all kinds of cheeses. Try a rock hard, two-year old cheese or a cheese with cumin seeds, a famous delicacy in Holland. When you are finished perusing the souvenir section your photos will be waiting for you at the checkout. 
  • One high quality photo per person to take home (size: 15 x 23cm)

    The customer friendliness, the mutual understanding of the employees (warm), price / quality ratio, tour, information, really everything was incredibly fantastic! It was pleasantly educational. I was with my mother who is wheelchair dependent. We were able to move effortlessly because it was taken care of. That is why my mother also enjoyed it immensely. I recommend everyone to visit Simonehoeve!

    The experience was incredible, we went in the afternoon and we were alone so the guide explained everything to us more closely and extensively. In addition to emphasizing the quality of the products they sell, they are incredible, and the laughter you get with the Dutch costumes is priceless.
