North Holland by Steam Ship & Steam Train Full-Day Tour

3. North Holland by Steam Ship & Steam Train Full-Day Tour

Your full day on the countryside will start at the train station of Enkhuizen or if you wish to combine this tour with a visit to the Zuiderzee Holland Outdoor Museum; at the trainstation in Hoorn. Set off in a relaxing pace to make sure you really get to see, feel and learn all about this area of North Holland called West-Frisia. After meeting your personal guide at the train station in Enkhuizen, start exploring the highlights of this historic town, once an important harbor to the former United East India Company (VOC). The United East India Company is often referred as the world’s first multinational company, and was definitely the first to issue stocks. Essential to Holland’s establishment of its colonies in Asia, and to the subsequent spice trade, it was arguably the 1st ever mega corporation. Your guide will take you on a stroll around the 17th-century town centre. Go to the Snouck van Loosen Park to see one of the first social housing projects of the Netherlands. Learn about Enkhuizen’s maritime traditions in the harbor, and marvel at the old defense tower of the Drommedaris. After a walk around town of about 45 minutes, take a seat aboard the historic ferryship Friesland. Enjoy views over the lake Ijsselmeer (Former Zuiderzee/South Sea), watch the birds in the sky and see traditional flat bottom sail ships passing by in the 90 minutes trip to the next stop, Medemblik. Upon arrival at the once prosperous trading town you will have about 1-hour to explore on your own. Admire the 17th and 18th century merchant houses of Holland’s Golden Age, and grab a sandwich of typical Dutch cheese. Next, ride a historic steam train to Hoorn. The engine whistles and the fireman shovels coal into the firebox. Wooden partitions creak, wheels sing and steam hisses. From the wooden 3rd class seats in your carriage you will experience a story from a different era. The train meanders from village to village across the West Frisian countryside. After arrival in Hoorn you have time to visit the Steam Train Museum. Finally have your personal guide take you for a walk around town to see the harbor where the spices arrived from Asia that gave Holland its prosperity. You can choose to depart from Hoorn if you prefer, taking the tour in reverse. This option also includes entrance to the Zuiderzeemuseum in Enkhuizen. See authentic buildings from the former Zuiderzee region, including a church, fish-curing shed, cheese warehouse, and houses from the surrounding fishing villages. The staff will demonstrate historical crafts from everyday life, and more.

Discover Enkhuizen: Walking Tour + Zuiderzeemuseum

4. Discover Enkhuizen: Walking Tour + Zuiderzeemuseum

Your morning or afternoon in Enkhuizen will start at your hotel, river cruise ship or, if you travel to Enkhuizen from elsewhere, at the train station. Set off at a relaxing pace to make sure you really get to see, feel and learn all about this town. The most important sights that your private guide will show are the Dromedary defense tower, recently renovated into a great cultural center. The Snouck van Loosenpark, a beautiful park erected late 19th Century as a social housing project. Admire the high tower of the South Church and its famed organ from 1621. See the lively harbor and shopping street. Learn why and how small ships have been built in bottles. Wandering through the streets of Enkhuizen will take you back in time to the days of the VOC (United East Indian Company) that made Holland in the 17th Century one of the most influential countries in the world. Enkhuizen in those days was one of the 6 main towns from the VOC. Your visit to Enkhuizen is made complete with a visit to the famed Zuiderzeemuseum. The Zuiderzeemuseum in Enkhuizen revives the stories of people who once lived on the shores of the Zuiderzee. See, hear, taste and smell everyday life around the Zuiderzee as it was before the Afsluitdijk (IJsselmeer Barrier Dam) changed the sea into the IJsselmeer in 1932. In the summertime the Museum ferry carries you across the IJsselmeer to the Outdoor Museum. The open-air section covers 15 acres and accommodates authentic buildings from the former Zuiderzee region, such as a church, a fish-curing shed, a mill, a cheese warehouse, shops and dwelling houses from the surrounding fishing villages. In the wintertime, you can explore the indoor museum, housing the treasure chest of the Zuiderzee. Temporary exhibitions display the rich collection of the Museum.

What people are saying about Enkhuizen

The Amsterdam City Card was definitely worth it. We used the tram and metro to get between the more distant destinations more quickly. We didn't really manage all of the included attractions in 5 days :-) Booking timeslots online without buying tickets was a bit complicated for some museums etc. We would book the City Card again for our next visit to Amsterdam!

He public transportation portion was well used. We are ate 2 of the discount estaurantsand enjoyed them. And it was so nice to be able to enter the zoo and museums knowing it was paid with the card.

Very easy and there is a lot of choice of things to do. Public transport is unlimited and you can visit Amsterdam easily. However, you need a good pair of legs because the tram stops are far apart

Purchasing the City Card through GetYourGuide was very easy and picking it up in Amsterdam went smoothly. The card is highly recommended for the Amsterdam trip!

If you want to do as many activities as possible and have free transport this is the best possible solution to visit Amsterdam
