To spend your time, underwater, in an authentic Achterhoeks cafe is possible during the Black Cross festival. The festival is held in Lichtenvoorde, Gelderland. Beer is not in the game during the visit, playing cards on the tables with a traditional Persian rug is.
Visitors to the underwater cafe must first put on diving equipment. "You should have had no alcohol, because that is incompatible with diving," says a spokesman of organizer Feestfabriek about the special attraction.
The underwater cafe is part of the theater program on the 26th, 27th and 28th July. The Black Cross is always looking for special events. This year there is also a Naked Run For Freedom, where 450 participants draw attention to the curtailment of freedom of speech, by running around, only dressed with a helmet.
