Today Roos visits Slochteren. Just outside the village is the beautiful estate Freylemaborg bearing, according to a legend, the name of the beautiful noblewoman Elema or Ailma. The estate was established more than seven centuries ago, but got it’s current appearance to the end of the 18th century.
The park, built in the English style, was designed by renowned architects G.A. Blum and L.P. Roodbaard. In 1972, the last owners sold the property to the Gerrit van Houten Foundation. After restoration, the Freylemaborg became a museum, where Rose is shown around and sees what it was like to live on the Freylemaborg.
Slochteren also houses a special collection .. police hats! Roos takes a look at the police hats museum located in the old station building. There you’ll find more than 1500 caps from 220 countries. Some caps come with strange anecdotes.
