Lonely Planet review

Many grassroots-style operations occupy this once-abandoned section of the buildings and grounds of the Valkenberg psychiatric hospital. You can volunteer to work at the village’s organic farm through the Willing Workers on Organic Farms scheme, go horse riding with Oude Molen Stables, eat at the cafe and farm stall Millstone or go for a swim in the village’s outdoor pool. However, we’ve had too many reports of robberies occurring to recommend the backpacker accommodation also on the site.
