Appingedam Off The Beaten Path: 25 reviews and 25 photos
Seagoing ships moored on the quays of the "Delf" where freight was loaded and unloaded. Trade was mainly with northern Germany and the area around the "Oostzee". Several loading and unloading berths can still be seen be seen the "Solwerderstraat" and the "Damsterdiep". The old medieval structure of the town and many old houses or warehouses have remained. When the importance as a sea port receded, many warehouses were converted to residences. Silent withnesses of this are the "hanging kitchens" above the "Damsterdiep" which originated owing to a lack of space since the buildings were, at the front, directly on the street and, at the back, directly on the water.
