- English, Gut Heimendahl, tour
Gut Heimendahl, near Kempen, is a working farm estate dating back to 1838. The lovely buildings create an atmosphere of country life through history.
On a tour of about 45 minutes through the estate we will hear about the history of the buildings and the estate and how it is managed in the twenty-first century. We will see the wide variety of crops which are grown there. At Gut Heimendahl they also have large and small animals: Jacobs sheep, a rare 4-horned variety, but there are also ducks, geese, chickens, pigs and horses.
The tour will be in English as the von Heimendahl family are enthusiastic fans of all things British. Evidence of this will be seen in the Hof shop with many local products but also some imports from the UK. In the grounds there are several other small shops to explore. It is also a wonderful place to visit with all the family, especially children, so do come and discover a hidden gem just a short drive away and don’t forget to bring your camera!
