We, Ilse and Niek, are passionate about history. We have been running the Hooge Crater Museum full time since 2008, which has grown into the best private WWI museum. From that point of view, we are also involved in the reconstruction and the rich history around Hooge and Bellewaerde. In addition to the museum there is also a cosy themed cafe with tasty local beers and small snacks prepared with local products. We are also the official information point for the Westhoek. All kinds of brochures and cycling and walking maps are available.
Our tourist activities have now been expanded to include a camper point for 8 camper vans.
