"Eemnes" Eemnes by pieter_jan_v
Eemnes Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 5 photos
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:Located at 2 highways
- Cons:Not a tourist attraction
- In a nutshell:Just outside the busy Randstad
