When you walk through the century-old centre of Enkhuizen it seems like the Golden Century is still living on. The beautiful West-Friesland is undeniably connected with its rich past. One day the towns along the shores of the Zuiderzee were the proud and mighty trading centres of the VOC (Unified East-India Company). Nowadays history and pleasure meet in harmony. Old-fashioned rest and space you'll still find in the countryside of West-Friesland. With its rustic farms and windmills, outstretched land and orchards and the Omring dyke. West-Friesland in North-Holland heart and soul and you can feel that on every square metre.
Enkhuizen has a unique outdoor museum, Zuiderzeemusuem, a village where it seems like time has stood still for centuries.
Children can play all day plus see fairytale characters like Snow-white and the Sleeping Beauty come to life in Enkhuizen's Sprookjeswonderland.
