Landhuis Chobolobo


Did you ever wonder why blue curaçao is blue? Find out at Landhuis Chobolobo, where the liqueur is produced (in five colors, actually) from the peel of Valencia oranges. Walk yourself through an informative tour of the tipple's history and production process, then hit the gift shop to sample the goods. Landhuis Chobolobo is located on the eastern side of the Schottegat.
