Around the 12th Century, a settlement arose from sailors, merchants and craftsment at the crossing between the rivers "Apt" and "Delf". A document from 1224 first mentions the name Appingedam. Due to its favourable position, it quickly developed into an important merchant- en market centre and capital of het District "Fivelingo".
