Back to the past
At a beautiful location in Nature Park Lelystad is a small village called Swifterkamp. The village, which currently has two farms, a hunter-gatherer hut and three outbuildings, exudes the atmosphere of a bygone era. Occasionally it is inhabited by groups of adults and children who wish for a short or longer time to taste what it would be like to live in the New Stone Age; the time when hunter-gatherers gradually switched to farming life (in the Central Netherlands from about 6300 years ago).
Swifterkamp consists of 2 parts, a Mesolithic (hunter-gatherer) part and a Neolithic (first farmers) part.
The Mesolithic part can be visited daily.
The Neolithic part is open on Wednesdays and Sundays from 11am to 4pm. This depends on the availability of volunteers. Entrance is free.
In the months of May, June, July and September they are usually closed on Wednesdays due to school camps. Planning to come by then? Call first to find out if they are open or closed.
Fancy a unique experience by camping in such a special place? Swifterkamp also offers unique accommodation options.
