Echten Things to Do: 3 reviews and 4 photos
Around 1800 BC there was a large renovation. About half of the building was demolished, so that the forecourt arose. The walls of the main building were raised and a second floor and the garret were built. Eversince that renovation nothing has been changed to the outside of the house. Not much later the pigeon house (1846) on the green field, of which are very intrigued, was built.
After a huge restoration in 1976 Visio putted the house into use. Visio is a special foundation that lets multiple visually disabled people work there. You're able to watch them work at settled times. Monday untill friday:
09:00u - 10:00u
10:30u - 12:00u
13:00u - 14:30u
15:00u - 16:00u
The baroque English garden in front of the main building can only be visited at monday untill friday form 09:00u - 16:00u. Another must do is the hike "Het Laantje van Hollema". This leads you from the parking space into the woods and around the beautiful havezate.
Address: Zuidwolderweg 3-5, 7932 PN Echten.
Directions: Located at the eastern part of the village. Right behind the pigeon house.
