Villa Mondriaan

Museum over het vroege werk van de wereldberoemde schilder Piet Mondriaan

Reviewed By Sokje17 - Emmen, The Netherlands

The villa and exposition are worthwhile to visit and open your eyes to the early artistic development of Piet Mondriaan.
The technicalities of drawing and composition was taught to him by his father who was a gifted artist himself. His uncle Fritz Mondriaan taught him to paint in the impressionist style.
Later he developed in Amsterdam Cubism with his friends Theo van Doesburg and Bart van der Leck. He made several drawings and gouaches from the garden of his parents house.
Especially the drawings of the apple-tree in the garden were instrumental in the development from cubism to abstract painting.
The museum is well laid out and the audio tour is included in the price of the entry ticket.
Small snacks are available in the coffee corner.

Dit ooit zo mooie natuurwater is nu vies en vervuild. Je moet eerst door de hondendrollen en de groene drab lopen om bij het water te kunnen komen. Wat is deze plaats achteruit gehold. Jammer jammer jammer

English: Good festival, a lot of good music and events. Very loud though and a lot of drunk people. Expect your cloths to get dirty. They also spray water and very well shredded paper which stings your eyes and mouth. Besides that pretty fun.
Dutch: Goed festival, veel goede muziek en evenementen . Zeer luide hoewel en veel dronken mensen . Verwachten dat je kleren vuil te krijgen. Ze spuiten ook water en zeer goed papiersnippers , die uw ogen en mond steekt . Daarnaast is best leuk .

Kaasboerderij Weenink

Reviewed By Anja B

Being Dutch there isn't much that captures my imagination than cheese. I love cheese in all its forms but Dutch cheese...the texture...nothing like the plastic feel of the Lidle Edam...No, real Dutch cheese like the cheeses they sell here at the Kaasboerderij Weenink, the young ones, firm yet soft...all that contradiction...it cuts like butter but slower depending on age. They are all there from young to really old, crumbly, dark with white chalky stripes when it gets cut! And the taste! The lady behind the counter makes sure I've tasted all the ones she sees me looking at.
The Dutch don't just like the cheese as cheese they have the most wonderful flavourings: nettles, cumin, mustard seed ...I could have been there all day, taste it all...straight from the stable onto their shelves and the local yoghurt, quark, chutney....but the cheese here, from the well, made with love...
All I'll say is: there's not enough of it in the world.

Nationaal Onderduikmuseum

Museum about hiding and resistance in difficult times. The museum highlights everyday life during WW2 and the personal choices that people had to make at the time. The emphasis is on going into hiding in occupation time.

Great place to hang out for a couple of hours! Go back in time and get a feeling of what WWII was like - its an experience kind of like the anne frank museum- without a two hour wait. A must - see in aalten!

Escaperoom Groenlo

A challenging escaperoom? Many thinking and teamwork? An escaperoom that you do not just come to? Do not look any further! Escaperoom Groenlo is a challenging and nervous game based on the Battle of Grolle in 1627. While Grolle is occupied by the Spaniards, Prince Frederik Hendrik's army continues to wreak havoc on the city. Do you save Frederik Hendrik?

This is my wife's favourite shop in Winterswijk. If you like to browse and look around shops to find unexpected treasures, this is the place to go. It looks deceptively small from the front, but there's room after room full of gift and home decoration ideas, in vintage and antique styles, this shop has an amazing range of goods to browse!

Stenen Museum Winkeltje

Reviewed By windmillfan - Winterswijk, The Netherlands

Sfeervol museumpje en winkeltje met een fraaie collectie edelstenen, mineralen en kristallen uit de hele wereld. In de winkel kleine snuisterijen, sieraden, fossielen, versteend hout, decoratieve ruwe stukken steen - plus een collectie boeken over edelstenen, mineralen, kristallen, esoterie, bewust leven, enz. Tevens handgemaakt aardewerk/servies. Mijn vrouw en ik kochten een zoutkristallamp uit de Himalaya voor weinig geld, en zijn er erg blij mee. Zeker weer een bezoekje waard!

This could be a great stop along a bike ride through the country side. Bike from Winterswijk through lichtenvoorde and Silvolde and all around the countryside. Very pretty around that area with great biking paths. Erve Kots gives you a good idea what life was like in the old days.All original buildings and a great restaurant as well.
