Parking your bicycle...

Please do not park your bike by the front gate of the Esserberg or on the Rijksstraatweg itself. It causes great inconvenience to local residents and also can be dangerous as it hinders the view of traffic by the crossing. Please use the regular bike park by the entrance to the Hemmenlaan. From Monday, bikes that are parked in these places will be removed. Thank you!
