City Trips
Amersfoort. Distance: 27 km A very well-preserved medieval city, still protected by monolithic gates. Thanks to the many monuments, streets, canals and subtle details you can feel the medieval city that originated in the 13th century. The Muurhuizen, built into the 13th-century city walls, are one of the most fascinating sights of the city. When the city began to expand in 1380 due to the economic boom, a new city wall had to be built. The old wall was demolished and from about 1500 onwards houses were built with the material of the old wall along the line where the city wall stood. Because the construction of these houses has taken place in different periods, a great diversity of forms has emerged. The center of Amersfoort is one of the best preserved medieval city centers in the Netherlands and has more than 300 national monuments. Via the old inner streets you will reach De Hof. This is the nicest square in the center of Amersfoort. You will find terraces and restaurants everywhere on this square.

Utrecht. Distance: 43 km. Utrecht is the most centrally located of the four largest Dutch cities. It was one of the first cities in present-day Netherlands with city rights, namely since 1122. The street plan of today's Utrecht city center originated in the Middle Ages. There are also many medieval houses here, although in later times the majority of them have been changed in layout and / or appearance. Yet many monumental buildings have been well preserved. This applies in particular to eight medieval churches, of which the Dom is the largest and best-known. The more than 112 meters high Dom Tower, from which Utrecht derives its nickname Dom City, is the highest church tower in the Netherlands. Furthermore, the low-lying yards along the water of the Oudegracht and Nieuwegracht are special. The city of Utrecht has a long and turbulent history in some periods. This goes back to Roman times at the beginning of our era, when the Roman armies built their castellum. In the seventh century, a church was built on the site of the castellum. In the following centuries, larger churches arose here. From there, large parts of the current Netherlands were Christianized. In the 13th and 14th centuries, Utrecht, situated on the River Rhine, was one of the most important trading cities in Europe. With the rise of the county of Holland, this trade moved there and Utrecht became less important, although Utrecht remained the largest city in the Netherlands until the beginning of the 16th century. After that, Utrecht gradually dropped to fourth place in the ranking of largest Dutch cities. In the year 1808, Utrecht was the capital of the Kingdom of Holland for a short period. From the 20th century, Utrecht experienced a new period of prosperity, now mainly due to its central location in the Netherlands.

Amsterdam. Distance: 47 km. Amsterdam is the capital and by population the largest municipality in the Netherlands. The city is located in the province of Noord-Holland. The municipality of Amsterdam has more than one million inhabitants. The number of different nationalities in the municipality is among the highest in the world.

The place received city rights shortly after 1300 and grew into one of the most important port and trading cities in the world, in the Golden Age. An influx of foreigners led to city expansions from the end of the 16th century, including the last canals of the fortification that is now known as a canal belt and was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2010.

Museums Amsterdam
The Anne Frank House is a writer's house and biographical museum dedicated to Jewish wartime diarist Anne Frank. The building is located on a canal called the Prinsengracht, close to the Westerkerk, in central Amsterdam in the Netherlands. During World War II, Anne Frank hid from Nazi persecution with her family and four other people in hidden rooms at the rear of the 17th-century canal house, known as the Secret Annex (Dutch: Achterhuis). She did not survive the war but her wartime diary was published in 1947. Ten years later the Anne Frank Foundation was established to protect the property from developers who wanted to demolish the block. The museum opened on 3 May 1960. It preserves the hiding place, has a permanent exhibition on the life and times of Anne Frank, and has an exhibition space about all forms of persecution and discrimination. In 2013 and 2014, the museum had 1.2 million visitors and was the 3rd most visited museum in the Netherlands, after the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum.

Entrance Almere. Distance: 28 km. The Oostvaardersplassen, a large swamp area with reed plains, rugged grasslands, ponds, surrounded by forests: a true bird paradise of international value. These are the Oostvaardersplassen, part of the New Land National Park. More than 50 years ago, nature in southern Flevoland created this vast swamp area. Geese, spoonbills and cormorants quickly found the Oostvaardersplassen, just like deer, foxes, hares, bats and butterflies. And since 2006 even the bald eagle is nesting there. In this bird-rich swamp area, people and nature work together in a special way. You will encounter heck cattle, konik horses and red deer along the way. With their grazing they keep the grasslands open in a natural way. And they in turn ask for care and management. Discover this bird-rich swamp area and experience how each season has its own dynamics and surprising developments. Go on a safari with a forest ranger, get on your bike or download ‘The New Wilderness iTour’ on your smartphone and get going. 

You can take a well deserved rest when you reach the welcoming bar in the De Oostvaarders nature experience centre on the Almere side, or alternatively rest your legs in the Buitencentrum in Lelystad. Both visitors centres provide binoculars for spotting the animals in the reserve.

Zeewolde. Distance: 16 km. The Hulkestein Forest is a nature reserve of approximately 1000 hectares in the Dutch municipality of Zeewolde. The Hulkestein Forest is a young forest area, created after the reclamation of Flevoland. The soil consists of clay, sand and peat. After the reclamation, the course of the former river Laak became visible. The original course of this river was restored and now, as Laakse Slenk, ensures the supply of water to the Hulkesteinse Bos. During the excavation work, the remains of a cog from the Middle Ages and the remains of prehistoric settlement were found on this site. A swampy forest is developed by watering the area.

Harderwijk. Distance: 17 km. Harderwijk has been a Hanseatic city since 1252. The city, located at the time on the Zuiderzee, joined the German Hanze. With the coming and going of traders there was plenty of activity in the city. Harderwijk became a city of significance. Now, in the 21st century, the traces of this time are still visible. Where you walk today, centuries ago people walked who played a role in the Hanze. Harderwijk received city rights from the Count of Gelre in 1231. The city quickly developed into a leading trading city. It benefited from its location on a number of important trade routes, to Deventer, Elburg, Hattem, Kampen and cities along the Zuiderzee, the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. There have been regular floods for as long as Harderwijk has existed. Due to storm tides, the water rose to great heights, so that the water ran into the city. The flood of 1916 led to the Zuiderzee Act, which laid the foundation for the reclamation of the Zuiderzee. With the construction of the Afsluitdijk in 1932, the Zuiderzee became the IJsselmeer. With the Hanseatic city walk you will be guided along the gems of the city. The Vischpoort, the Grote Kerk, the City Museum, the Vischmarkt (the culinary square) and the port of Harderwijk. You look out over the Wolderwijd where once, the water of the Zuiderzee was. Harderwijk is a bustling and lively city. The trade has moved to cozy stores with a wide range of clothing, accessories, gift items, treats and much more. But also to the many terraces where delicious drinks and tasty lunches are served. Harderwijk is a culinary city, a romantic city, a city with a lot to experience.

Urk. Distance: 52 km. Urk is a municipality in the Flevoland. Urk is first mentioned in historical records dating to the 10th century, when it was still an island in the Almere, a lake that would become part of the Zuiderzee in the 13th century after a series of incursions by the North Sea. In 1939, a dike from the mainland to Urk ended the town's island status, just as the Afsluitdijk project was changing the salt water Zuiderzee surrounding Urk to the less saline IJsselmeer. Later in the 20th century, seabed areas surrounding Urk were reclaimed from the sea and became the Noordoostpolder.

Bunschoten-Spakenburg. Distance: 34 km. Spakenburg is a former fishing village. Before the construction of the Afsluitdijk, the village lay on the rough Zuiderzee. The name Spakenburg for the first time appears in the 15th century. The fishing village was on the Zuiderzee and has had to endure many floods. For that reason, the houses were initially built high against the dyke. The ports of Spakenburg are inextricably linked to the development of the village. Here were the botters with which the fishermen earned their living. Around 1892 the village had around 200 botters. After the closure of the Zuiderzee in 1932 and the reclamation after the Second World War, the fishing fleet went downhill. Nowadays there are still thirty botters in the Oude Haven. This is little compared to the past, yet it is about half the current Dutch botter fleet. The botters are only used for pleasure boating, because the old fishing vessels were replaced by the fishermen with modern cutters. The village still lives largely from the fish trade or bread and cake. The shipyard where the botters were built was purchased in 1986 by the municipality of Bunschoten. After the renovation, this serves as a restoration yard for existing botters and other historic ships.

Bunschoten-Spakenburg. Distance: 34 km. Spakenburg is a former fishing village. Before the construction of the Afsluitdijk, the village lay on the rough Zuiderzee. The name Spakenburg for the first time appears in the 15th century. The fishing village was on the Zuiderzee and has had to endure many floods. For that reason, the houses were initially built high against the dyke. The ports of Spakenburg are inextricably linked to the development of the village. Here were the botters with which the fishermen earned their living. Around 1892 the village had around 200 botters. After the closure of the Zuiderzee in 1932 and the reclamation after the Second World War, the fishing fleet went downhill. Nowadays there are still thirty botters in the Oude Haven. This is little compared to the past, yet it is about half the current Dutch botter fleet.

Marken Distance: 68 km The former island of Marken is located in the province of Noord-Holland at the Markermeer and the Gouwzee. It has been a ,tourist attraction for at least a century. Marken's striking traditional costume has contributed to this. Until the arrival of the Afsluitdijk, Marken was a village ánd an island in the Zuiderzee. In 1957, a dike was built between Marken and the mainland, causing it to lose its status as an island. The Marken peninsula is now a popular tourist destination. Almost the entire peninsula has a protected cityscape and there are several national monuments. The most famous building on Marken is the lighthouse known as “Het Paard van Marken” ( The Horse of Marken) Many tourists already know their way to the former island, because of the monumental wooden houses and colorful costumes. In 1957 the island was connected to Monnickendam with a dyke. Characteristic for Marken are the wooden houses on stilts. Even older are the so-called "yards", artificial elevations on which people lived.

Kornwerderzand. Distance: 125 km. (through the beauty of Friesland / Third Best in Europe, Lonely Planet 2018) The Afsluitdijk is the water barrier between North Holland and Friesland, which closes the IJsselmeer from the Wadden Sea. The dam takes its name from this (aflsuiten = Closing down) The Afsluitdijk is important to protect the Netherlands against flooding. The Afsluitdijk is part of the Zuiderzee Works. Construction began in 1927. In 1932 the last closing hole, the Vlieter, was closed. A year later, the dike was opened to road traffic. At the place where the Afsluitdijk was closed, a monument was erected, the Vlietermonument. On the Afsluitdijk, near Kornwerderzand, there is a striking building, like a head of foam on the dike: The Afsluitdijk Wadden Center. This center offers a total experience about Unesco World Heritage Wadden Sea, the unique Fish Migration River, the IJsselmeer region and not to mention the Afsluitdijk itself.

Den Oever. Distance: 118 km. AN AUTHENTIC PIECE OF HOLLAND / NORTH HOLLAND WADDEN COAST The Wadden Sea is the last true nature of the Netherlands. Weather, wind and water create a special landscape of mud flats, salt marshes, dunes, channels and sandbanks. This huge tidal area is important for millions of birds and fish. You will find large predators like the common and gray seal and sometimes harbor porpoises. But if you take your time and look carefully, you will see much more. Discovering, experiencing and researching are rewarded. Wadden Sea World Heritage Site has been voted "Most Beautiful Nature Reserve" in the Netherlands. The Wadden Sea is one of the last major tidal areas where natural forces can take their course. Every time you get there, it's different. Water, sludge and sand move with every tide. Through the system of channels, arbors and mud flats, mud and sandbanks are drying up where seals are resting and birds are foraging. The seabed seems bare, but full of life. From the Afsluitdijk near Den Oever, the wadden coast of Noord-Holland extends via Stroe, Hippolytushoef and the Amstelmeer to Den Helder. Here, behind the dikes, you will find an authentic "piece of Holland". With a vast polder landscape full of historic towns, agriculture and lots of nature. And with many opportunities for walking, cycling, canoeing and unwinding. An area by water that borders the Wadden Sea UNESCO World Heritage; with plenty of fresh fish in port places: Den Helder or Den Oever.

Schokland Distance: 52 km Walk round an island that does not exist, The island of Schokland, which used to have several villages, was finally abandoned in 1859 on the orders of the government which was fed up of rescuing its population from floods. All the buildings were destroyed so that the Schokkers, as the locals were known, could not move back. Then in the 1940s, the Zuiderzee sea around the island was reclaimed and Schokland became part of what is now the Noordoostpolder. Follow the round Schokland walk and imagine how bleak it must have been to live on this swampy rise in the middle of the sea, especially in a storm.
