De Vliegende Hollander (The Flying Dutchman) has been serving guests since 1983, thus making it the oldest coffee shop of the town. The owner made headlines in the international press several times, sending the current Dutch king a package of joints for his 18th birthday for example (if he smoked them personally the story doesn’t tell, but they were never returned either). The main reason we like this small place is that it has 17 different quality marihuana selections and is the only one in town serving the good old Purple stuff, loved by hippies and others as it grows outside and it doesn’t have high amounts of THC. Two small glass cages, one being the smallest one of the Netherlands, are built for smoking your weed or hash on the spot. A Wurlitzer jukebox is at your disposal for breaking the silence. Also a good place to pick up homemade spacecake and a spice joint (without tobacco). The owner donates part of the annual profit to special projects, like a parrot refugee camp, a bear forest, and giving chickens a decent life.
