This summer every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, dry weather only! 

Until August 27, our tour guides in the garden of Museum Joure will tell you about the special history of Douwe Egberts. On this spot the famous coffee brand once started. The tour guides are - if the weather is dry! - every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from about 1:30 to 3:30 pm. In rainy weather, this activity will not take place.  

The cradle of Douwe Egberts
The premises of Museum Joure are the birthplace of Douwe Egberts. In the little store and the adjacent mansion on the Midstraat, the company once started. When business was good, a warehouse was built in the garden, next to the canal. The three buildings are all part of Museum Joure. The tour guides of Museum Joure can tell wonderful stories about this famous company. This is how history comes to life!
