Together with our beekeeping teacher you will enter the Beepalace and take a seat on our in-structure bench where you see the bees flying in with pollen on their legs. The beekeeper will tell you more about; the specially designed building, the bees, how they live, what they eat, need and produce. You will be able to taste some delicious, sustainable Amsterdam honey, learn about propolis and it's tincture, taste pollen, feel and smell wax, and try some sustainable lip-balm made out of it. He will answer all your questions, tell what the story is about the bees dying that we hear off in the media, different sustainable/modern approaches, what natural beekeeping is and what YOU can do to provide them with a brighter future. You will then be given a bee suit and go inside one of the hives together with our experienced beekeeper and see nectar, honey, pollen, brood and you might even get the chance to touch/hold them yourself. After this exciting -because going inside a hive with 10-50.000 bees is an- experience, we cool down on the bench with a nice glass of honey-wine so you can ask your final questions.
I am the director and natural beekeeping teacher of WellBeeing. As the beekeeping teacher of this foundation, I train 12 English and 12 beginner students to become natural (city) beekeepers every year. I catch swarms, give introduction courses, lectures, teach in school about bees, host visits to the bees, develop natural hives and create nesting spaces for (solitary) bees, plant flowers, spread seed (bags), ... whatever I can do for bees and pollinating insects. The Bee Palace in the Westerpak is one of our 6 locations in the city of Amsterdam but it is unique for its construction, location in the Westerpark, natural hives. We organise visits of 10 people for locals at fixed moments in time. But I would also like to allow visitors and tourist to dive in the wonderous world of bees with me in a smaller setting that allows more experience.
WellBeeing is a foundation that is trying to help the bees and pollinating insects in as many different ways as possible. We keep bees naturally, plant, give courses, make natural hives, ... We have 6 apiaries in all corners of the city of Amsterdam where we try to support the well-being of the honeybees on the long term. We would like to invite you to the Bee Palace to get to know them, and us!
