Volunteer organization


In Genneper Parken ontdek je het groene Eindhoven van de eerste vijfennegentig generaties Eindhovenaren. Het erfgoedpark verbeeldt op ware grootte het leven in Eindhovense hoeven en huizen in de prehistorie en middeleeuwen. Archeologische opgravingen in en rond de stad gaven de wetenschappelijke informatie waarmee in het park reconstructies zijn gebouwd. In de vorm van ‘levende geschiedenis’ nemen tijdgidsen je mee in hun wereld.

Core activity

Maak kennis met bewoners uit de prehistorie en middeleeuwen en doe zelf mee met de bezigheden van vroeger! De ene week geniet je van zwaardvechtdemonstraties of zie je ambachtslieden aan het werk, de andere week dompel je je eigen kaars, probeer je de boomstamkano uit of bak je een koek boven een vuurtje.
