Kollum (12 km away)
Kollum is one of the most important villages in the Frisian Woods. Because it always occupied a central place in the region in the past, traders and businesses in the village always enjoyed relatively high levels of prosperity, certainly compared to surrounding areas, as Kollum is located in what used to be one of the poorest regions of the country. This prosperity can be seen in the traditional Dutch facades in Voorstraat, the main street, which are adorned with stepped gables, cornices, and clock gables. In total, Kollum is home to 31 national monuments, including the two churches mentioned below, the Oudheidkamer Mr. Andreae [local museum] in the old post office, and the old town hall. The name Kollum is also linked to a type of cheese: Kollumer Kaas, a cheese made from raw milk with a strong flavour. Every year, the Kollumer Kaasdagen (Cheese Days) are held in the week before King’s Day.
This village is well worth a visit. We have maps of bike rides to Kollum at our park.
