Prins Bernhard hoeve
The Prince Bernhardhoeve Zuidlaren stopped her fairs and events. The complex is now the permanent sand sculpture park to see and the name is also changed to Sculpture Park Prince Bernhardhoeve . Eventually the name ' Prince Bernhardhoeve ' will disappear . A radical decision that director John Franke has taken. He was inspired to because on May 10 the Sculpture Park 'De Hondsrug verbeeldt' opened her doors. This exhibition attracted more than fifteen thousand visitors over the past few months .
This decision means that the Black Market, the small animals show the North Show, dance parties and car shows disappear from the agenda from Zuidlaren. Some events were more than 35 years in the complex. But according to Franke it is the combination of sand sculptures with arcade , theater, laser show , Brick Sart and the link with the Geopark Hondsrug that saved the Prince Bernhardhoeve . Franke also wants to bring the World Sand Sculpture to Zuidlaren.
