Dutch historyThe dutch town has plenty of old buildings and a unique style that comes with it. All types of churches are to be found which have all got their own characteristics, like the Stolphoevekerk from 1658. The historic building is mostly used as a location for marriages in this day in age.
The shopping centerThere are all types of shops in the center ranging from clothes shops to authentic souvenirs to jewellers providing plenty of memorable jewelry. There are also malls located in the town like ‘De Stient’ and ‘Van Baarstraat’, and there is a big boulevard where people live to complete it all.
Actively exploringIf you’re done walking around the town, the further area can be easily explored by bicycle. Using the cycling routes, which there are plenty of, it’s possible to see the whole area. Cycle on the dikes to find the ancient mills which there are so many of in The Netherlands. If you’re in need of a break from cycling, sit down for a drink at a terrace or find a beautiful spot to have a picnic. Be careful near the waterfront though, as you may be surprised by ducks or geese who are interested in a bite of your food.
