What you'll do

A tourguide will guide you through the last woodenshoe factory in the city. We will discuss the history of the woodenshoes and the history of this local area. We will show you the production process from tree till finished shoe. You will see machines producing (shaping) the woodenshoes. Also by hand we do a lot of work. This will also be demonstrated for you. Questions will be answered and let's also discuss the future of the woodenshoe. Not many people are still walking on the klompen. At the end of the tour we will show you our warehouse which also has a small shop. The shop still has factory prices so a good place to buy your woodenshoes and souvenirs.

Luuk

I am a traditional woodenshoemaker. My family has made woodenshoes since 1928. My factory has been in the center of our little village for almost 90 years and we still make our traditional woodenshoes every day. We use machines but also do a lot by hand.

Where you'll be

We will show you the unique process of making a woodenshoe. The only way to see this process is by participating in this tour.
