De Oude Remise


The renovated building that you see here is known as 'De Oude Remise' ('The Old Roundhouse'). It was once in use by the National Railway for servicing locomotives here in this town Bad Nieuweschans. The building dates from 1877 and had enough room inside for 12 locomotives.
From 1948 until 1980 the local bus company used it as their garage. Nowadays it's officially a heritage site and is home to a grand café, a tourist and archeological information site, and the (see and do) Lego Museum Bricks Art.
