    Memorial for 50 years of peace

    This memorial located on the crossing of the Bachlaan and the Verdilaan was put here by the school children of Naaldwijk in 1995.

    It's made up out of tiles with the designs made by the participating schools.

    Schools from Honselersdijk, Naaldwijk and Maasdijk took part in the creation of this Memorial.

    It shows the importance to remember past wars to see the real value of peace..

    De Tuinen, the place to shop

    I dont know about you but i love to shop (maybe because i am a woman?) Since 1998 we have a a shoppingstreet with a roof over it. So when it rains outside (and thats happens a lot in Holland) we can have a nice shopping without getting wet. Different shops, two nice coffeecorners, perfect environment and they have something special : Nice smelling garbagebins. There is a special technical thing in it thats it smells like coockies with christmas, flowers in spring and coco in summer!

    Lake Auction

    rainbow of the flower auction

    This little lake is in front of the auction. Community Naaldwijk has got this statue called the Rainbow as a gift from the auction. The reason they called this the Rainbow is because in the pipes are little holes. From this holes comes water, and when the sun is just a little there, you can see the rainbow in the water.

    Heilige geest hofje Naaldwijk

    Near the old church in the middle of Naaldwijk is a little, very little street. You would almost miss it when you would be walking up there. On the end of this street is a door which brings you to a garden with a lot of little, coulored houses surrounding it.
    This one of the most beautifull places of Naaldwijk : Het Heilige geest hofje (when i translate it word for word its Holy ghost garden.
