We had an enjoyable time here learning how Gouda and Edam cheese is made and also watching a clog being made. There are a large variety of clogs to buy and cheeses in various sizes. Try the 2 year old Gouda, It's excellent.

Stopped here on a tour from Amsterdam to watch clogs being made. The lady demonstrating was very funny - she reminded us to shield our eyes as the wood flies everywhere. There is a souvenir shop and you can buy the clogs they make
