    Take a guided tour through the old Beer Brewery and taste the beer afterwards in 'De Proeverij'. You can also buy the beer for drinking it at home.

    Unfortunately I could not make pictures inside the place but I enjoyed myself immensely. The pools all have special features for massage or just floating around. It was fun to be in the outside pool while it rained heavily.

    We had reserved a programme and were welcomed with coffee and cake while everything was explained. Then we spent 4 hours in the pools, steambaths, sauna's and bubble baths and were offered lunch. After that we lay on some vulcanic mud and then had our backs massaged.

    Equipment: The mineral water may irritate your skin a little so take a good cream and use it afterwards.
    I also took a scrub glove because all that water and steam makes your skin soft enough for a good scrub.

    I felt wonderful after this "beauty day".

    ARCEN WATERMILL

    by ATLC Written May 26, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The thermal baths (www.thermaalbad.nl)
    The brewery (www.hertogjanproeverij.nl)
    The watermill and distillery (www.ijsvogel.com)
    The castle gardens (www.kasteeltuinen.nl)

    Fondest memory: There wasn't much room to park the car at the watermill distillery IJsvogel so I parked it right in front on the road.
