Outing to a windmill and a Dutch farm


Invitation for Saturday, May 27

International Cafe @ Facebook

To all international students,

We would like to invite you to our excursion on Saturday May 27, 2017. We will go to a windmill and a farm, taking us outdoors at this great time of year
First we will visit a windmill, after that we will visit the home of the family Kooistra in Lellens, enjoy their company an see a bit about dutch farming. Before we head back to Groningen, we will also enjoy a simple and tasty meal (also vegetarian) at the farm. Wear old clothes, as it can be a bit muddy!


  • 14:10 we gather a platform J at the bus depot at Groningen central station
    (One hour later! We previously said that we would take the bus of 13:20, however since farming is time-consuming we better arrive a bit later at the farm!)
  • 14:20 bus leaves heading towards Delfzijl
  • 14:43 we get off the bus and take a 2-minute walk towards the windmill
After the tour at the mill we will have cars that take us to the farm, where we will have the opportunity to get an idea of how farming is done in the Netherlands.

Going back to Groningen: we will try to catch the bus of 20:02
So we leave the farm around 19:30, and we will be back at Groningen central station around 20:30.


For those of you who have a chip card it costs €3.33 euros one way, so for the whole bus trip it will a bit less than €7,-. If you have an OV card it will be less.
