Est. since 1968
The roots of De Twee Bruggen go back to 1968, the year in which Aart Mensink opened his catering company De Schoppe. Although his parents preferred to see him continue the farm, Aart had a different future in mind: he opened a campsite at De Schoppe not much later. The park was named after two bridges near the Boven Slinge brook. De Twee Bruggen soon expanded into a large and modern campsite, where guests were provided with all amenities.
In 1996, the baton was handed over to his son, the then 21-year-old Hendrik-Jan. Hendrik-Jan grew up at De Twee Bruggen and loved helping his father at the campsite. He became more and more interested in recreation and gained the necessary experience to be in charge at a later age. He did not take over De Schoppe fully until his father Aart left the company two years later.
In a short time, De Twee Bruggen was expanded into a 5-star holiday park with the complete works: from spacious camping pitches with private sanitary facilities and fully furnished accommodations to multiple catering facilities, an indoor and outdoor swimming pool and a supermarket under own management.
