Weekend tips from week 28

Yes, it’s Friday again so time for the weekend tips of week 28. The summer vacations have just officially begun for the Central Netherlands region. We celebrate this with good sunshine. Next weekend it promises to be great weather as well. Plenty of reasons to get out and about.

So read on quickly for the new weekend tips.

Festival week ‘s-Gravenzande

Last Wednesday the party week in ‘s-Gravenzande started. After Naaldwijk I always find this one of the most fun weeks in the region. Every evening there is plenty to do but during the day it is also great fun for the kids. Saturday is the last day of the fair.

From 11.00-19.00h the streets will be full of market stalls. On the Graaf Florisplein there will be a flea market again. Always nice to look for nice toys. The fair is also fun for young and old, of course. This can be found at the Zandevelt and Pijper square.

On the facebook page of the party week you can find all the ins and outs.

Corn maze Hoeve Bouwlust

Since 1 July the corn maze has reopened at Hoeve Bouwlust in Maasland. Every year, if the corn is high enough, a maze is made in the field. A very fun activity because in this maze you also have to answer questions. This is an exciting scavenger hunt.

If you manage to find the exit you will be treated to a bag of popcorn and something to drink. This tour of the corn can be done every day for 5 euros per person. Of course there is much more to see and do on the farm.

For a complete list of activities check out the website of Hoeve Bouwlust.

Scramble forest

Would you rather spend a day being active? Climb, clamber and play? All this is possible in the Klauterwoud in Vlaardingen.

The Klauterwoud is located in the nature reserve Broekpolder. It is open to everyone and highly recommended for young and old alike. You will find a labyrinth of tree trunks and gullies. You can climb play equipment, trees and hills. There is a stream through which you can cross with a tow boat or very tough over narrow tree trunks.

To take a rest you can have a picnic on one of the picnic tables or of course with a blanket in the grass. Keep in mind that there are no public facilities. More information about the Broekpolder can be found on the website.
