Yacht Charter Netherlands - sailing area
The distance between The Marina of Andijk and Enkhuizen is about 9 miles
At the most easterly point of the region stands Enkhuizen which owes its prosperity to the Zuiderzee in the Golden Century.
In the monumental centre there is still much to discover that brings back the memory of the Dutch East India Company period such as the
16th century Drommedaris tower. Adjacent to the historic town centre, the Zuiderzee Museum portrays a picture of life and the past at sea.
The town is also home to the basis of the Enkhuizen Almanac.
In Enkhuizen the water-sports enthusiast will find modern marinas with all amenities and can berth his yacht right in the old town.
The Enkhuizer Zand recreation area is suitable for the whole family and includes waterside recreations and
Sprookjeswonderland (Fairy Wonderland).
Enkhuizen is the home port of many traditional Dutch barges, the so called 'Brown Fleet'.
Sprookjeswonderland (Amusementspark) Come and visit the gnomes in their dwellings and the well-known fairy-tale figures.
Enjoy the musical of the spoiled little princess Violinde in a real-life castle or romp about in the beautiful original playground.

Zuiderzeemuseum. The Zuiderzee Museum is a fascinating day out for the whole family.
In the open air museum you can see, hear, smell, feel and taste how the people of this region lived around 1900.
Sit in on a history or handwriting lesson at the local school in Kollum or drop in on a typical housewife in 1930.
You never know, she might invite you to stay for a bite to eat. Children can dress up in the traditional costumes worn in
Volendam or Marken, play with hoops and have a go at walking on stilts.
In the indoor museum there are many exhibitions that present a vivid record of the turbulent history of the Zuiderzee.
