    Favorite thing: The Wubbo Ockels bench is a placed to honor Hollands first Astronaut Wubbo Ockels, born at Almelo in 1946. The bench was unveiled one day before his dead at May 18, 2014.

    The design was inspired by the Space Shuttle shapes. The bench has solar cells, LEDs and a hand powered generator.

    The bench is located at the Grotestraat, corner Werfstraat.

    Grolsch beer!

    by Bill_Steg Updated Dec 11, 2002

    Grolsch forever.........!

    Favorite thing: Forget about Heineken beer if ever you get the opportunity to taste Grolsch beer in it's unique flip-top bottle. This beer is available in most countries in the World! Correct me if I'm wrong but does this taste like WHAT!

    Fondest memory: Getting rat-arsed with Jimmy (Irish) and Chris (Australian) one Sunday riding a bike to the German border and back and visiting only pubs where they served GROLSCH! (11 of them!)
    Try that!

    Oliebollen op de markt......

    by Bill_Steg Updated Dec 11, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Eating doughballs filled with currents.

    Favorite thing: Naast oliebollen eten op de markt is er natuurlijk de zoute haring. Eating doughballs filled with currents and fried in hot oil is wonderful, also eating raw salted herring is extremely tasty.

    Fondest memory: Allready mentioned that in my intro.
