Genieterij De Slotplaats - Bakkeveen
The Slotplaats, now a cozy tea house, was originally a farm, built in 1818 and converted into a country house in 1922. The farm belonged to a castle that was demolished in 1837, the Blauwhuis, later also called Slot. The Slotleane (Lock lane) extends in front of the country house, focusing on the Martini Tower of Groningen. An avenue also runs behind the mansion, with the natural stone Burmania column in the heart of intersecting paths. The origin and function of the column are unknown; the Burmanias were owners of the house in the 18th century. The column has long played a role in the Bakkeveenster folklore as the place where the children would come from.
