Jan van Haasteren Puzzle 'The Vineyard'
I made the puzzle 'De Wijngaard' (The Winery) – this is number 19095. That is this puzzle:
and this is the box:
More about this puzzle
The artist of this puzzle is Rob Derks, who lives in Nijmegen. As inspiration for the Vineyard, Rob Derks has created the Winegrowing center in Groesbeek taken. From the article by the Gelderlander, in which Rob is interviewed, he says:
“My girlfriend works as a job coach at the wine center in Groesbeek, so I used to visit there too. When I see those installations, something immediately happens in my head. The Groesbeek wine center has of course not been taken over literally in the puzzle, but whoever comes from here will recognize things. The Stevenstoren and the Erasmus building in the distance, for example”. You can also see the Seven Hills in the background.
1. You can see the Stevenstoren in Nijmegen completely in the background, which is this:
And you can see him here on the puzzle, way back:
2. You can also see the Erasmus building in Nijmegen in the background and that is this:
And you can see him here on the puzzle, way back:
3. The Seven Hills of Nijmegen and these are these (you can see the location 'Zevenheuvelenweg' in Groesbeek here):
And you can see it here on the puzzle:
What are the seven hills and where exactly are they located? Nijmegen is built on seven hills. The center of Nijmegen is built on seven hills. The infamous seven hills of the Nijmegen Four Days Marches and the Zevenheuvelenloop / Marikenloop lie outside the city. To know exactly what the seven hills are, a quote from Wikipedia:
“Many events that use the Zevenheuvelenweg, such as the Nijmegen Four Days Marches and the Zevenheuvelenloop, report that there are only 3 to 4 hills. This is incorrect, often the events only use part of the road. There are indeed 7 hills in front of/in Groesbeek. The Zevenheuvelenweg itself, starting in Berg en Dal, has 6 hills. The last hill would be in the village of Groesbeek, where the Houtlaan is located. Another possible location for the 7th hill is the Galgenhei just outside the village, passed when the current road was built in 1953.”
Laying this puzzle
I always start by putting the pieces on the puzzle mat and then immediately sort them. that is, iI look for all straight pieces (edge pieces), there must be 216 – for those who want to count them if they have them all:
And yes, this puzzle has a blue sky and a blue sky is always tricky. Either you put the pieces wrong, or you're missing 1 side piece, grrrr…..I choose to just continue puzzling and later I'll see what it will look like and what exactly is going on.
I always start by putting together pieces of the same colors and stat with the large areas of colors. In this case I had once started with the roofs of the buildings in the vineyard. And started with the large kettles in which the grapes are processed into wine:
The next puzzle was taken in the evening and then you see that the image gets a different color. But I've made quite some progress here. And it is really a joy to make this puzzle, because there are also many people who taste and drink the wine. And yourself (!): Sinterklaas and Santa Claus don't have a fight for once. Very special what a good glass of wine can do and what an atmosphere can be created:
And finally I finished the puzzle here:
I made another general review about this puzzle from Rob Derks:
This puzzle was once made during the Dutch National Championships Puzzle
Nice to know, this puzzle was used during the NK Puzzle. During the preliminary round in Reek on 16-10-2021, a team consists of 4 people. With 4 people they have put this puzzle in a time of 1:04:55. So if you think you can participate in the Dutch National Championships? Then multiply this time x4 and you have an indication whether you are a fast puzzler. By the way: puzzle the NK is especially fun and fun to participate in!

The nice thing is that Rob Derks gets a lot of inspiration from companies and events in Nijmegen and the surrounding area. I have made a special page about this in which everything is described. Knowing more? Read: 'Rob Derks and Nijmegen'.

How long will it take you to complete this 1000 piece puzzle?
I made the puzzle 'The Vineyard' in peace and took several days to complete it. Beautifully made on a puzzle mat on the floor in the living room. I do take the time, but not very precisely, it remains a hobby that puzzles! But to give you an idea of how long it took me to complete this 1000 piece JvH puzzle:
- Explaining the pieces: 20 minutes
- Laying the edges = 25 minutes
- Laying the rest of the pieces = 4 hours and 30 minutes
- So it took me a total of 5 hours and 15 minutes to complete this puzzle. That is faster than it takes me on average over a JvH jigsaw puzzle, namely about 8 hours
About Jumbo puzzles
Jumbo (not to be confused with our supermarket Jumbo!) makes toys, games and puzzles. Jumbo, for example, has made the very well-known games such as “Human don't get annoyed” and “Stratego” and “PimPamPet”. Games that have been around for generations and are still widely played by both young and old. Jumbo has been making and developing toys since about 1900. In the early years of the company, only toys from other countries were imported to the Netherlands. However, since about 1930 it was decided to also make their own toys, at the time manufacturing wooden toys, which was very popular at the time. Almost all toys in those years were made of wood. An important spearhead was that the toys made by Jumbo had to be of very good quality; it had to be as strong as an Elephant. An elephant had to stand on it! The red elephant has been the hallmark of Jumbo's games and puzzles for years. The name Jumbo and the red elephant together form the logo from about 1935. The Jumbo elephant is drawn by Mr. Möhr. He worked at an advertising agency and regularly signed for Hausemann & Hötte. Mr Möhr was at one point commissioned to design a beautiful new elephant logo for the Hausemann & Hötte toys. The logo has changed a bit since then. For example, the eye has grown over the years and has dropped slightly more, resulting in a friendlier elephant.
In the past, the elephant was not only used in the color red, but in all kinds of colors such as blue, yellow, black, white and green. All those colors were cozy and playful. For example, one time there was a yellow elephant on the box and the other time a red one. It was usually looked at which color best matched the color of the box. It was not until the end of the 60s that the red elephant was definitively chosen. Red is a color that stands out and attracts attention.
From 1945 Jumbo also started to focus on games made of cardboard. Jumbo has therefore been a guarantee for strong quality for years! Jumbo is a unique Dutch company with a rich history, with its head office in Zaandam. About 130 employees work for Jumbo. With a turnover of €75 million, Jumbo is a medium-sized European player in toys. Jumbo has sales offices in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the United Kingdom. They export to more than 25 countries around the world.
In 1980 Jumbo starts the production of Jan van Haasteren Puzzles.
