Nice to combine with the Alida Hoeve is the clog factory next door. Clogs are still made by hand here from poplar or willow wood, and they are painted with typical Dutch motifs, creating unique and authentic pairs. During a visit to the clog factory, you can get a guided tour and see how the clogs are made. And, of course, it is possible to buy your own decorated pair in the souvenir shop.
