Alida Hoeve cheese farm & De Vriendschap

The Alida Hoeve cheese farm and De Vriendschap wooden shoe factory are located in Volendam, just 20 minutes north of Amsterdam by road. The Alida Hoeve is a typical Noord-Holland farmhouse with a 'cheese cover' roof. Where cows once grazed, there now stands a shop with cheese for sale. Visitors are welcomed by staff wearing traditional Volendam costume and who offer a comprehensive explanation about the preparation of the cheese.

The wooden shoe factory De Vriendschap is situated next to the Alida Hoeve cheese farm. Here you can enjoy a free wooden shoe-making demonstration, learning all about the many facets of real Dutch clogs. Wooden shoes are available in all sizes and with many different decorations – fun to wear or as a memorable souvenir of your trip!

Entrance and parking is free, plus demonstrations are available in multiple languages.
