Broek in Waterland

Earlier this week I visited Broek in Waterland, a lovely town just 8 km north of Amsterdam. I drove past it before, but I just never took the time to explore. The town consist mostly of wooden houses, built in the 17th and 18th century. This town was a popular residence for merchants and seafarers from Amsterdam. Much of its rich history has been preserved.
After a walk through the streets of Broek in Waterland, the restaurant ‘De Witte Swaen‘ is a great place for a stop. If you have the time and appetite, try one of their many pancakes!

  1. I can see why you enjoyed this town so much!!!

  2. Great shots, Marjolein. I often ride through Broek in Waterland on the bike. You’ve inspired me to stop and stay longer with the camera next time.
