Netherlands 4: Holland's Golden Circle

Netherlands  4: Holland's Golden Circle

Here we discover typical Dutch towns and villages that surround the Zuiderzee, linked by a thriving fishing industry and a golden history of trade. First to Spakenburg, a vibrant fishing community centuries ago, but it lost most of its importance in 1932 with the construction of the Afsluitdijk. Next to Hoorn with its beautiful merchant homes that date back to the "Golden Age" of the 17th century; then to Mademblik, where we see the beautifully restored 13th century Radboud Castle. In Makkum, we discover its pottery and tile industry dates back to the late 16th century; then we visit the Afsluitdijk, an enclosure dike that is responsible for the creation of the "Golden Circle" by linking the provinces of North Holland and Friesland. Our last stop is Giethoorn, a unique village known as the "Venice of the North" because of its amazing network of narrow waterways, which were started in the 1200's by Mediterranean refugees. 04/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
