This pretty neighbourhood consists of green houses and windmills that were relocated here to create the look of an 18th century village. The village has exhibitions on chocolate making, workshops to demonstrate rare handicrafts making, like wooden clog carving, barrel making etc.. This is a well known and very touristy place, expect quite a bit of a crowd. The entrance is free but there are guided tours available as well. We also did a cheese tasting here, almost all the cheese were not intense for me(a surprise).
