Are you interested to discover how our customs and traditions came into being? And how the past inspires our future? You will discover all of this at the Bokrijk Open-Air Museum. From 1 April onwards, you can let yourself be immersed in the history of today’s, yesterday’s and tomorrow’s craftsmanship. Discover the authentic production process from grain to bread, and learn more about the rituals associated with this. Starting in May, bread specialists Kobe Desramaults and Sarah Lemke will be baking artisanal bread with locally-grown grain in the wood-fired oven of De Superette Bokrijk. Would you like to try your hand at making something yourself? Visitors can set to work in the workshop sheds with bread dough, clay, leather or wood. Not only will you learn all the tricks of the trade, you will return home with a hand-made souvenir! Or step back in time in The Sixties expo with interiors typical of the era. Iconic record covers, film clips from TV shows and festivals, as well as unique collection pieces will whisk you back in time where you will experience and relive life in the swinging 60s. The Open-Air Museum is located in a 55-hectare park, a paradise for hikers and cyclists. Visit the arboretum or explore the De Wijers lake area cycling through the water. Your children or grandchildren will be able to play to their heart’s content in the big outdoor playground (free of charge).
