Vreeland Things to Do

  • Open the bridge please!

    The photo is taken from the garden of the neighbour where I lived next to.It's just fun to sit in your front garden and watch the boats go by. In the old days there would be a 'clog' where the skippers would donate a few coins for the bridgekeeper. I haven't noticed if this is still the custom in 2005 but it was in the 80s.

  • The bridge

    The bridge is the center of the village, over the river Vecht, connecting the old northern part with the newer southern part.During season, the bridge opens several times in an hour to let boats (mostly yachts) pass by. The bridge is electric and cost 1 million guilders some 20 years ago. When I lived there, it was still mechanical and made a lot...

Vreeland Restaurants

  • Top ranked restaurant

    Two Michelin stars, ranked #7 of Dutch restaurants in 2003.Actually, I lived exactly opposite this restaurant, with the river Vecht between us. When in the front garden, I'd see people drink coffee on the terrace and looking at OUR beautiful houses.At the time we could not afford to eat at De Nederlanden, but the visitors could not afford to live...

  • The local fastfood

    To my delight the snackbar was still there, hidden in a little street just along the water. Even the name is still the same after more than 20 years!

    Here's a little map of Vreeland where you can see how tiny it really is. On the map is a little house (Voorstraat) where I used to live.

Vreeland Shopping

  • Grocery store

    There's one small grocery store in Vreeland. it's important that people keep buying there because otherwise it would close and the village would have to go without.

  • The bakery

    'Grof volkoren' is what I loved to buy from this bakery. It's dark brown, wholemeal bread. There's only one bakery in the village, so you can't miss it.

Vreeland Favorites

  • Church organ

    In those bygone years I used to play the church organ, together with 2 other ladies, alternating each week. It was fun watching the service from above. One of the other organ players, an older lady, was capable of making the organ sound like a street organ when she played piano music on it. Yuck, I hated it, but it was funny.

  • St. Nicholas church

    This is the (protestant) church of Vreeland.The church is frequently used for taping and broadcasting concerts, as it was this afternoon (June 2005) when I heard noises inside and decided to enter. They were just setting up for a new concert.

  • The choir and pulpit

    The church verger was a funny man. He actually never went to church service. He would make everything ready and when the service started he'd go home, shower and walk the dog and be back in time for the end of the service!
