Between the old pear trees

Hem is a classic West Frisian village, attractively situated between pasture lands and ribbon villages, and with the Markermeer within cycling distance. If you carefully plan a visit to Hem, you can enjoy the Old Timer Festival in the spring. You will find a motley collection of classical cars on six thousand square metres. There are also performances by Rock-'n'-roll bands, fashion and dance performances: all in retro style! 

You can camp between the old pear trees in an orchard, at Minicamping De Kampeertuin. Or stay overnight in the traditional nineteenth-century 'stolp' farmhouse De Fruithof, also in a lovely orchard. Pick your own fresh plums, apples and pears straight from the tree. During your holiday, do you want to be read to like when you were young? Then pay a visit to cultural association De Verteltuin: here you can listen to the best stories in nature!

Tip! Would you like to pick a beautiful wild bouquet? At Pluktuin Juffertje in 't Groen you can go ahead.
