Winter Walk and Cheese Tasting

February 25 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Cheese tasting: A wooden plank featuring four slices of Dutch cheese. The cheeses vary in color, texture, and shape, inviting viewers to appreciate their diversity. Each slice is accompanied by a small knife for serving. The aroma emanating from the cheeses hints at their rich flavor profiles, enticing onlookers to enjoy a tasting experience.
What a wonderful time for a winter walk and some cheese tasting, as winter begins to loosen its grip and the cheerful songs of birds herald the arrival of spring, nature unveils its exquisite charm. The low-lying sun casts a golden glow upon the reeds, while frost delicately blankets trees and shrubs in a shimmering white layer.

A Haven for Wildlife

Amidst the cold waters of the Kagerplassen, flocks of Eurasian Wigeons, Gadwalls, Tufted Ducks, and Teals find solace, accompanied by large gatherings of Greylag Geese, alongside their Canadian and Barnacle counterparts. Despite a relatively mild winter, the elegant Little Egret still graces the water’s edge, while hares prepare for the mating season, darting and bounding across the meadows. Indeed, a stroll through the countryside during this season is an enchanting experience.
