Bakery and Ice Cream Museum - Hellendoorn
In 1936, Mr D.J. Valk started a bakery shop at this location. His son Gerrit specialised in baking bread and pastries. Over the years, the assortment was expanded to include traditional ice cream. With a tricycle full of ice cream, they travelled the wide area. Thus, 'IJs van Valk' became a household name in Hellendoorn and its surroundings.
After the death of Gerrit Valk in 1985, a foundation set up the Bakery and Ice Cream Museum. In the old bakery, the machines such as the dough kneader, the mixer and the almond peeler are still in their original state. Currant pies and apple cakes are still regularly made with them. In the "Sukelahuussie" (chocolate house) you can see how the small-scale bakery and ice-cream production gradually moved towards mass production with an exhibition of machines driven by a steam engine from 1924. You can also see the first ice cream machines. This collection is unique in Europe!
Conclude your visit with a drink and home-made sweets in the coffee corner.
