Daytrip Kampen: City and polder
DAYTRIP KAMPEN : CITY AND POLDER
During this walk, M.A. Reinier de Wit will place the history of Kampen in a local, national, and international perspective by pointing out some of Kampen’s distinct characteristics.
You will explore the historic tower bell, the medieval defense gates, the narrow streets, the many different churches, the Kogge shipyard and of course the river at which Kampen lies: The Yssel.
After lunch the boat will take us and our bikes to Kampereiland across the Yssel. The Kampereiland is the oldest polder of the Netherlands, just outside Kampen. You will visit a museum farm to see how farmers used to live and work in the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century. Interestingly, the museum holds a large collection of traditional bonnets. You will also visit the work studio of professional artist Henrie Vogel. Henrie lives and works in a refurbished farm. Henrie will show you around in his studio, give demonstrations, and will invite you to make a masterpiece of your own!
