Monnickendam

It was founded by monks in 1230. It’s an old fishing town with many eel smokehouses. The so called Monnickerdammer fishing days are still celebrated. Basket makers, net menders, wooden shoe makers and traditional fish smokers are quite willing to show their craftsmanship. In this town you’ll find the oldest carillon of Europe.

Note

A village like this is definitely worth a visit, although a visit of 1.5 to 3 hours is mostly enough. For a fully day program do the Waterland auto route, or visit several villages in this region.
