Trout fishing


At the Forelderij there are beautiful trout ponds. At the Forelderij you pay for the fish you catch, not for the time you spend fishing. When you leave, you pay for the amount of fish you’ve catched. It costs € 11,- per kilo whole fish or € 12,- per kilo cleaned fish. You can’t throw a catch back into the pond. To come and fish, you need to bring your own fishing rod and bate. We don’t have equipment to rent or buy.

Picking garden & shop

The Forelderij doesn’t just have clear fishing ponds and a fantastic restaurant. We also have a beautiful picking garden. Here we grow delicious fruits and vegetables. We use these at our restaurant, but you can also pick them yourself to take home. We also grow flowers, with which you can make a gorgeous bouquet. Please tell one of our employees at the restaurant that you are going to pick some fruit, vegetables or flowers, before going into the garden.

Walking & biking

The Forelderij is situated in a beautiful area, which lends itself perfectly for walking or biking. We have charging point for electrical bicycles. This way while you recharge at our restaurant, your bike can recharge as well.
