The Golden Age was an important period for Westfriesland. The cities of Hoorn, Enkhuizen and Medemblik were situated on the Zuiderzee and benefited from the prosperity at the time of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). In the harbour of Hoorn you can board the VOC ship ‘De Halve Maen’ and even sail along the Markermeer. Visit the ‘Westfries Museum’ to learn all about this significant period. The ‘Museum of the 20th Century’ in Hoorn houses an impressive collection of objects from the 20th century that will appeal to both young and old alike! Your visit will take you on a nostalgic journey with many familiar but long forgotten items from the last century. Theatre and congress centre ‘Het Park’ is situated on a beautiful location right on the shore of the lake in Hoorn. With a variety of shows in theatre, music, cabaret and dance, there is something for everyone to enjoy a fantastic night out.
