The distance between The Marina of Andijk and Hoorn is about 19 miles
This town on the IJsselmeer offers a combination of old and new.
Monumental facades tell of the history of this former Dutch East Indies Company town.
The street plan has to a large extent remained intact and historical buildings have been retained in their
old forms. The town has at least 300 monuments.
Around the harbour there is something of everything to be found; an old lock, cheese warehouses and fully-equipped modern
marinas. The 'Wooden Head' landing stage, now frequently used by the historic 'brown fleet' of wooden boats, and the Hoofdtoren
tower date from the 17th century. Around the harbour there are various pavement cafes, restaurants and benches for watching what
is going on.
