    Hallo P.J. Het glasmuseum in Hoogeveen is enige jaren geleden opgeheven. Ik dacht richting Schiedam maar weet dat niet zeker. Groetjes Henk

    Ik doe m'n best om ook een leuke pagina te maken van mijn eigen "hometown". Leuk om toch nog wat te lezen over Hoogeveen van een ander!

    When I was in Europe, I was so obsessed with the large European cities that I missed the smaller places like Hoogeveen.

    Who would think of Hoogeveen as a travel destination? I gather you mean beehive as symbol, not simple?
    Let's see more! :-)
