If you hurry and move to Oost this winter, you will ice-skate around the Jaap Eden baan while drinking hot chocolate. The raisin-bread from bakkerij Hartog is the best there is and famous in Oost. Those thick slices of bread keep you warm in winter. But that is not all.: You have Artis (the local zoo) as your backyard. That means you could hear donkeys and monkeys and see the flamingo’s, zebra’s and penguins possibly even from your balcony. Did you know the owner of Artis acutally lives is Artis? No dogs are allowed into Artis, but after closing time the owner walks his dog there between all the animals. What are you waiting for, make it happen, because nothing seems like more fun than wondering around Artis and walking your pet with the owner of the park.
