Enkhuizen Overview

At the most easterly point of the region of West-Friesland stands Enkhuizen, which owes its prosperity to the Zuiderzee, now IJsselmeer, 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 Enkhuizer 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). At Enkhuizen there is a busy lock in the dyke that leads to Lelystad, used a great deal by vessels of the 'brown fleet', the flotilla of old wooden boats. Enkhuizen is the home port of many vessels of the 'brown fleet'.
