Enquiring About The Local Area…

The sand sculptures in the 2017 Garderen Sand Sculpture exhibition VVV Tourist Office follow the theme of ‘Out and about in the Netherlands’ The text on the information board translates into English as: ‘The VVV (Tourist Office) is the right spot to find out about local highlights and landmarks worth visiting. The VVV Tourist Office of Garderen is located in windmill “De Hoop”.”  Tourist information offices are in all sorts of buildings of all styes and ages in the Netherlands, from new to centuries old. The VVV has information on everything from local tourist spots to cycling or walking routes. After all there is nothing better than asking the locals! In this case the parents are with their baby who is sitting in a boldercar, a kind of small wagon that can be pulled along by the parents. This means that small or tired children (or in some cases old dogs!) and other gear can be taken on walks, be it through the forest or with all the picnic gear to the beach.
