Castle Radboud

Castle Radboud is the only remaining West Frisian fortress built by Floris the Fifth. The castle dating from the 13th century houses a modest collection of objects that illustrate the building's history.

When visiting the castle, you'll have the chance to cast a glance into Medieval times. There's an exhibition that will help you do just that by telling you about the history of the castle and of Medemblik. The exhibit can be accessed by climbing the winding staircase created inside the tower's wall. After the exhibition you'll descend into the prison: enjoy getting the creeps. Finally, you can enjoy a drink at the castle's coffee room.

A visit is worthwhile for children as well: by means of a treasure hunt they'll explore the castle and feel amazed about how Medieval people used to live in a castle. There's also the option of organizing children's parties, with the children dressing up as knights and ladies and looking for Floris the Fifth's sword.

Sailing

Feel the freedom on the water... Will you choose a sailing boat or one with a motor?

Don't have your own boat? You can rent one from us in order to sail around Medemblik and its area. You can choose from three types of boat: a silent boat, a motorboat and a sloop.

Sailing in West Frisia The sailing route network of West Frisia makes the region very attractive. Water is inextricably linked to the region... Of course, this is owed to its perfect location at Lake IJssel and Lake Marken, the countless watercourses and, let's not forget, its VOC (Dutch United East India Company) history.

The polders 'De Vier Noorder-Koggen' and 'Het Grootslag' feature sailing routes that have been marked using a hub system.

Kite surfing spot

Just like other spots around Lake IJssel, Medemblik is a great place to take some kite surfing lessons. It's a long coastline where the water is quite shallow in many places.

When it comes to space on shore it may take some compromise, but there's plenty to make up for it for any kite surfer. There's a wonderfully flat stretch of water, sheltered by a round dike in the water, perfect for freestyle enthusiasts.

Reason enough for a kite surfing school to use this location to inspire enthusiasm for our beloved sport.

Flat and shallow water, few waves and little current. Great for beginners.
