Visit the old peat factory and discover the story of the peat industry and the heath cultivation around Bølling Sø. See the machines used for peat work and say hello to old farm breeds of horses, rabbits, geese, pigeons and hens.
100 years ago, children were actually faster in carrying out the work of “growing peat” than adults. So, child workers had an important role to play, with the fastest children growing up to 30,000 blocks of peat in a day.
Families with children can play outdoors in the large nature playground with a fantastic view of Bølling Sø.
