For a piece of old Dutch culture, make sure to explore Medemblik. Old houses, narrow streets and picturesque facades will transport you back in time for little while. In case you can't get enough of it, pay a visit to Floris the Fifth's castle 'Radboud' with its impressive knights' hall and towers. Make sure not to miss the beautiful museums and monuments either, including the late Gothic church 'De Bonifatius' with its stunning stained glass windows, painted pillars and a unique Pieter Backer organ dating from 1671.
Wonderful relaxation in the peaceful area of the park, catching some fresh air at Lake IJssel and enjoy everything Medemblik has to offer. Still, our bustling capital is not far from the park and offers a great opportunity to include a day visit to Amsterdam in your vacation.

Alkmaar is known as the cheese city of the Netherlands, but that title only captures a part of the picture because this city in North Holland has much more to offer.
