Broek in Waterland

Take the opportunity to cycle, canoe or visit one of several listed buildings, have a bite toe at or stroll through the protected rural area.


The buildings, mostly dating from the 17th and 18th century, concentrate around the Havenrak. Perceptive hikers will see that some houses have a square roof at the back. These ‘squares’ mostly date from approximately 1650 and probably served as a cowshed until the early 18 century.

It is also a wonder that there is so much space and quiet to be found right next to the busy Zaan region, a stone’s throw from Amsterdam and directly beside the most popular national tourist sights.
