Panoven Country Estate

Panoven Country Estate is a well-maintained industrial heritage site. The former brick and rooftile factory, which dates back to 1850, has been put to new use for recreational purpose: groupaccommodation and hotel facility. Up until 1924, four coarse ceramic products, rooftiles, tiles, drainage pipes and bricks, were produced at Panoven Country Estate. There-after, the factory focussed on producing bricks for the private housing market.

The former brick factory has been in the possession of the Kruitwagen family for nearly one hundred years. The family has been known for having the knowledge of producing bricks for more than three hundred years. Up until 1983, the Panoven factory was in use for baking bricks in a traditional way. Unfortunately, Wim Kruitwagen, the present owner and last living brickmaker, had to stop production in 1982 due to the recession in the housing market. In the past years, the Kruitwagen family has transformed the brick factory into a well-maintained industrial heritage. The Kruitwagen family believes every brick has its own special story to tell and would like to share the story from raw clay to bricks with its visitors.

You may now enjoy the cultural history and the beautiful Gelderse Poort river landscape (10.000 ha Nature Resort) in a special way and spend the night in a unique way, taste local products, enjoy whisky and cigars, take part in activities, or combine these activities within a special package deal. Panoven Country Estate welcomes families, clubs and associations, schools and businesses.

Panoven Country Estate has a few unique features:

  • The only round zigzag kiln in Europe.
  • The only brick factory in the Netherlands with all the buildings and machines in a very good condition.
  • Unique archive of pictures and books from the entire coarse ceramic sector.
  • An original biotope, including the brick factory, dikes, the Old Rhine and the polder landscape. These elements are part of a National Programme called Delta works. This is a story about watermanagement.
