Drunen Things to Do
The land of In-between
Het Land van Ooit
This land is not suited for parents, because the motto is Children are the boss. They decide what to do. There are several plays especially great for children (in dutch) and there are a lot of nice playarea's with several strange attractions. Also some horseshows, and a show with knights.

Anton Pieck (1895-1987) has left more traces behind than only De Efteling.
Drawing Teacher Pieck with his own romantic-nostalgic style, designed by Max Phillips commissioned a building in Drunen which the propellers manufacturer among vintage car collection could bring. It was opened in 1972.
The museum grew out of his jacket, was not allowed to expand spot and moved to its current site in Vinkel and Rosmalen. The Autotrongebouw in Drunen was preserved and is now called Front Venne.
Mid fifties Pieck accepted the command of Max Phillips to a farm building between Vinkel and Rosmalen. Pieck had never designed a real house. On this piece of land was Drunense complex virtually copied again from drawings by Pieck.
In 1987, the year in which Pieck died, was moving around. He designed the house was restored and turned into the headquarters of Libéma. The stables were offices.
