Enkuizen is a Harbour Town that was important when the East Indies Company was trading.

It received city rights in 1355.

There are some factories here, but Tourism is very important to this Town.

It has 2 magnificent Churches, City walls, Gates & Tower.

The Marina is one of the largest in the Netherlands.

Located here is the Zuiderzeemuseum which I visited and this was excellent.

I had a great time here, and it was very well done.

The Town is interesting to walk around also.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Easy to walk around, plenty to see

    What a great little town. I really must get back to the Netherlands some day. I'd especially love to hear the carillon at St Pancras.
