EEMNES

I totally forgot we visited Eemnes some years ago to explore a thrift store.
I must have seen the village in the distance when travelling to AMsterdam via the A1 highway.

Eemnes means a stretch of land or spit in the Eem river.

The history of this settlement goes back to the 13th century when due to a lower average water level the delta could be transformed into farmland.

In the 16th century canals were dug and a real Dutch polder created.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Located at 2 highways
  • Cons:Not a tourist attraction
  • In a nutshell:Just outside the busy Randstad
  • Last visit to Eemnes: Dec 2012
