Thats the place where I been born and have lived the first 30 years of my live.Wormerveer is in the Zaanstreek a region in the west of Holland between Amsterdam and Alkmaar 20 km from the North Sea coast.
It is an industry region with in the past more than 1.500 windmills and there are now only 15 there.
Some are still working and you can visit them. Wormerveer is on the small river ( just 11 km) De Zaan, that river is a connection between Amsterdam and Purmerend, Alkmaar en Den Helder.
There are a lot of watersport possibility's there, windsurfing, sailing, rowing, canoing, swimming and waterskiing. A must to visit is de Zaanse Schans with old wooden houses and windmills, there is also a woodenshoe factory where they make woodenshoes and you can visit it and watch the making of the woodenshoes, there are small waters and bridges, a pancake restaurant de Kraai, and the old grocerieshop from Albert Heijn now one of the biggest grocerie company's of the world. There is a lot of industry but nice to go there with the beaches just 20 km away.
At the other side of the bridge are this old warehouses, de buildings on the left are still in use by the rice factory... more travel advice
