"purmerend" Purmerend by Igraine

Purmerend Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 25 photos

Now I have officially moved to Purmerend, well almost. It might be time to put something up here. But I can't think of anything.

There is still not much to do, it does have 3 trainstations with direct connections to either Amsterdam CS and Schiphol. So lots of possibilities to leave this place.
Also numerous bus lines to Amsterdam. So location wise its ideal for a visit to Amsterdam.

Wow snow in Purmerend! This picture was taken with the first snow falling. I loved, still love it. But for the people having to get to work it was a bit less fun.

When I was walking last week I came across the Necker molen (Mill at Neck). It looked very pretty in the winter sun and with a thin sheet of ice on the water (Noord Hollands kanaal).

    Hi Ingrid! I always remember my passage in Purmerend and Dokkum, going to Ameland Island with my little Fiat Panda some years ago... There was a glider flying over the town and the sky was so blue! Many greetings from Sardinia!!! Gilda
