De Blije Bij

In this historic house from 1930 by the pond in Schutterspark (where the boats go), you’ll find a real apiary. Beekeeper ‘’De Blije Bij’’ (The Happy Bee) teaches the art of beekeeping. The honey is for sale at various places in Schutterspark or online.

My favourite spot

“The benches at the water’s edge near the ponds.

Looking at

the ripples,

I find complete relaxation.”
