    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    People visiting Puyenbroeck do not intend to have a proper meal. What they want is to enjoy nature, the children want to play. A little snack, refreshing drink is always available but relatively expensive ( coke - at least 2 Euro ). But sitting on a terrace and have a look at the paddlers is nice.
    I even think that the campers do not intend to have a meal. They have their own cooking facilities and yes, the dutch campers are known for .......

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Problems getting around in the Domain Puyenbroeck - tired feet or no rental bike available.
    No problem, take the Mercedes train, cost - i think Euro 2.50 for a tour of about 20 minutes.
    Several stops possible
    I didn't found out if it is an electrical engine driven bus, or on gasoil. Anyhow it was, in my opinion not disturbing nature or pedestrians/cyclists.
