When do you have this chance: dredging through the swamp with your feet and rolling through the mud? This is precisely what makes a barefoot path so much fun. Such a path can be found at Buitenpost, with a shop and cosy greenhouse café for a drink after your adventure. There’s a playing field and covered haystack for the kids.
If you’re not one for the beaten tracks, you should certainly follow the barefoot path. At Buitenpost, they’ve set a beautiful route where you climb over tree trunks, walk through the mud with your bare feet and slide off the slide in the leemkuil (loam pit). You can be as wild as you like. Therefore, we recommend brining an extra set of clothes when walking this path. In addition to the adventure, the path also leads past the gardens of the Buitenpost, where they grow fruit and vegetables.
Hey, did you know?
Ever heard of kangkung, yacon or kai choi? These are exotic vegetables Buitenpost grows. Kangkung, for instance, is Indonesian water spinach and kai choi is a leafy vegetable with a mustard-like flavour. Yacon is a plant of which the sweet roots are edible.
