History

Medemblik West Friesland’s oldest city. Lying amidst peace and quiet and expansiveness is Medemblik, the oldest city in West Friesland. The Regatta Centre and Water Sports  Museum, where national and international sailing competitions are organized, add international allure to the town.
Historical and modern In the centre you will find modern and historical hand in hand. Beautiful yachts and historical ships from the brown fleet tie up in the modern harbours of the historical inner city. Sitting on one of the terraces you can enjoy all that hustle and bustle on the water while you savour a delicious drink.
Museums and castle The city has many museums; Castle Radbout, which dates back to the 13th century, occupies a prominent position. At the Baking Museum the most delicious delicacies are baked traditionally and at the Steam Mill you can learn everything about the evolution of the steam machine. Medemblik is also a stop for the Hoorn-Medemblik steam tram.
Those looking for peace and quiet can mount their bikes with a VVV cycle route in hand and make a trip over dikes, through old ribbon settlements and along traditional farmhouses. From the top of the dike you can look out across the endless IJsselmeer.
