Many grassroots-style operations occupy this once-abandoned section of the buildings and grounds of the Valkenberg psychiatric hospital. The numerous activities include horse riding with Oude Molen Stables and swimming in the village’s outdoor pool. Also here are the cafe and farm stall Millstone.

Check the village's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/OudeMolenEcoVillage) for details of events such as the annual jazz festival, held over a weekend in late November.
