Once a dream, now a reality ....
The Hoftrammm Tramrestaurant was once a "regular" working tram, number 3035. However, as of May 2014, this culinary tram began riding through the streets of The Hague.
The creation of this unique restaurant originated in 2011. During a trip abroad, Bobby van Galen, initiator and owner of Hoftrammm, came upon a similar concept in Melbourne (AU). He immediately began putting much effort into realizing this special combination in The Hague: dining in a moving tram.
After approval from The Hague municipality and the city’s public transport company (HTM), crowd funding for this project started in October 2013. Despite the enthusiasm of many parties, banks did not stand in line to financially back this unique plan. Crowdfunding, via the platform “CrowdAboutNow”, turned out to be the solution. No fewer than 177 investors have placed their trust in this project and have made an investment (click here for the "Wall of Fame").
