There’s much to be explored outside of the popular city, see our recommendations suitable for a two to three day stay.
Start off with discovering the most fascinating fish, sea animals and shells from all corners of the world at the Sea Aquarium Bergen aan Zee.
Continue onto the Zuiderzeemuseum Enkhuizen where you’ll observe history of the former inhabitants of the area. Here you’ll see more than 130 old houses, shops and factories up close and personal.
Satisfy your curiosity at the Museum Stoomtram Hoorn-Enkhuizen-Medemblik where you’ll experience the most exciting journey through time by Steamtram and Boat!
Get active at the Mudflats and shrimp fishing from Den Oever/Wieringen. De Groot Recreatie organizes various mudflat hiking tours from Noord-Holland on the former island Wieringen, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Wadden Sea.
Lastly, but definitely not least, head out to The National Lifeboat museum Dorus Rijkers, Den Helder and try the heroes’ game. See if you are ready to join the lifeboat crew; feel the force of a force-10 gale in the wind turbine; experience rough seas on the lifeboat simulator; all things real lifeboat crew experience every day!
