Hoorn beautiful authentic harbour - Holland Holiday
A beautiful old city, about 40 kilometers from Amsterdam, is Hoorn.
In the past it was a succesful trading port situated on the Zuiderzee.
After closing this sea with a 30 kilometer barrier dam the Zuiderzee became a lake, called IJsselmeer.
After the construction of a dam between Enkhuizen and Lelystad the lake south of the dam was called Markermeer.
Today Hoorn is a bustling marina for water sports.
At the end of the afternoon the traditional ships enter the harbour, often with groups that make a trip on the Dutch waters, such as the IJsselmeer, Markermeer and the Wadden Sea.
These old Dutch flat-bottomed ships are called 'De Bruine Vloot', which means 'The Brown Fleet'.
The name refers to the brown sails many of these boats are equipped with.
Did you know that Cape Horn was named after the city of Hoorn?
In the year 1616 explorer Willem Corneliszoon Schouten named the cape after his city of birth.
The old town has lively shopping streets with pleasant terraces.
Like many other towns in the Netherlands Hoorn has a history with cheese. In summer there is a cheese market every week.
We take a look in a cheese shop that has hardly changed for generations.
You can also visit several interesting museums.
The collection of the Westfries Museum shows you the cultural history of the 17th century, the Golden Century.
Museum 20th Century houses an impressive collection of objects from the 20th century that will appeal to both young and old alike!
Or enjoy old masterpieces of poster design in the ‘Affiche Museum’.
Make a trip through time with a historic steam tram from Hoorn to another little harbour, Medemblik. Or a trip in combination with a boat trip to ancient port Enkhuizen.
You will enjoy your stay in Hoorn!

What To Do In Rotterdam, The Netherlands
This video is a city guide and city tour of Rotterdam. You'll see my top 5 highlights of one of the most modern cities in Europe.
Above all, Rotterdam is a city with vision. It was very nearly completely destroyed during World War II and chose to see the devastating loss as an opportunity to innovate and build anew. The city was a blank slate for architects and artists. Like a phoenix rising from the ashes of war, this Dutch city has become a city of the future. Rotterdam is a centre for design, art, architecture, and sustainability. Locals joke that you should take a photo of the skyline today because it won't be the same tomorrow.
The Floating Forest is a great symbol of all that Rotterdam cultivates and inspires. It's an art installation of twenty live trees floating in the harbour. Rotterdam has the largest harbour in Europe and you can't talk about the city without reference to the water. The trees are recycled from the city's 'tree bank.' With all the new construction, trees are sometimes cut down in the march of progress. Now, instead of being chopped, they are moved to a tree bank for further use and enjoyment. The trees float in recycled sea buoys that are filled with fresh water to sustain the trees. The artist, Jorge Bakker, hopes the public art will get people talking about the relationship between the city dweller and nature. In this time of climate change and urbanization, this is relevant not only to Rotterdam but the entire world.
The Erasmus Bridge - Erasmusbrug, in Dutch - is the graceful link between northern and southern Rotterdam. Locals adore this steel-cabled suspension bridge and lovingly refer to it as 'the swan.'
Nearby the bridge, and across from the Fenix Food Factory, is Hotel New York. This is the former head office of the Holland America Line - the first shipping and passenger ship connecting the Netherlands and the United States. It was also the first connection between the two continents.
The newest architectural gem of Rotterdam is the Market Hall (Markthal). It's the first covered market in the Netherlands and is a masterful example of innovative multi-use space. Inside you'll find food vendors, shops, restaurants, parking for 1200 cars and over 200 residential apartments. The exterior is plain grey stone so as to draw attention to the interior which is dominated by the massive painting on the ceiling. Covering 11,000 square metres, it's the largest painting in the world and is known as the Sistine Chapel of Rotterdam.
Just across from the Markthal are the world-famous, iconic cube houses. Conceived and designed in the 1970s to solve the dilemma of housing above a pedestrian bridge, these atypical homes show, again, how Rotterdam answers limitation with innovation. The cube houses are meant to represent an abstract forest and are tilted at an angle that gives excellent views of the surrounding area. Ironically, however, because of the slanted walls and ceilings, only a quarter of the interior space is actually usable.
Looking around, it's easy to see why Rotterdam feels futuristic and is leading the way for green living and modern design. Have you visited Rotterdam? I'd love to hear your impressions so please leave a comment down below.

Netherlands: Roermond: The water is wide - Our boat Alk visits Roermond
The town Roermond is surrounded by the 'Maasplassen', large pools of water, that arose after excavations along the river Meuse. Because Roermond itself is a very attractive town, it is a popular place for a weekend visit by boaters in the province of Limburg. This also applies to us...
Hoorn the Netherlands
Op 26 maart 1356/1357 verleende Willem V stadsrechten aan Hoorn, tegen betaling van 1550 schilden (gouden ecu's). Door deze maatregel kon de stad zelf rechtsregels opstellen en handhaven, en belastingen innen. Een neveneffect was dat de ontwikkeling van de stad als handelsnederzetting sterk bevorderd werd. Het oorspronkelijke document bevindt zich heden ten dage (2006) nog in de archieven van de gemeente Hoorn.
Hoorn overvleugelde al snel de andere Zuiderzeehavens. Alleen Amsterdam kende in de 15e eeuw een soortgelijke snelle groei. Belangrijke impulsen voor de stad was de keuze voor Filips van Bourgondië. Het Bourgondische rijk vormde een stimulans voor de handel. In de 15e eeuw ontwikkelde zich een levendige lakenindustrie, waarvan het product zich qua prijs en kwaliteit kon meten met het laken uit Leiden, Den Haag en Haarlem. Tegenspoed, voortkomende uit onder andere de Hoekse en Kabeljauwse twisten, alsmede de Gelderse Oorlogen rond 1500 brachten deze lakenhandel in de problemen. Bovendien kozen steeds meer Hoornse handelaren er voor te participeren in de Oostzeehandel (graan uit Polen en Litouwen naar Italië brengen).
Op Goede vrijdag van het jaar 1481 vond in Hoorn een grote stadsbrand plaats, waarbij vooral het westelijk deel van de stad werd getroffen.
Hoorn koos in 1572 net als Waterland en de gehele Zaanstreek, voor de reformatie en de Prins van Oranje. Tegen de 'Spanjaarden' is een zware zeeslag geleverd, de Slag op de Zuiderzee. Hoornse schepen werden in dat gevecht geholpen door inwoners uit Hoorn en vrijwilligers vanuit de Zaanstreek, Schermer en Waterland. De bevelhebber van de koninklijke vloot, stadhouder Maximiliaan van Hénin-Liétard (Bossu), werd gevangengenomen. Op de Bossuhuizen aan de Slapershaven is in gevelstenen en schilderingen deze zeeslag fraai weergegeven.
On 26 March 1356/1357  William V, granted city rights to Horn, against payment of 1550 shields (Golden ECUs). By this measure the city could establish and maintain rules of law itself, and collect taxes. A side effect was that the development of the city as a trading settlement was highly promoted. The original document is today (2006) still in the archives of the municipality of Hoorn.
Soon the other Horn were Zuiderzee ports. Amsterdam knew only in the 15th century a similar rapid growth. Important impulses for the city was the choice for Philip of Burgundy. The Burgundian Kingdom was a stimulus to the trade. In the 15th century developed a lively sheet industry, whose product could measure themselves in terms of price and quality with the cloth from Leiden, the Hague and Haarlem. Adversity, arising from, among other things, the hook and cod wars, as well as the Guelderian wars around 1500 brought this cloth trade in the problems. In addition, more and more traders there for Hoornse chose to participate in the Baltic trade (grain from Poland and Lithuania to Italy).
On good Friday of the year 1481 found in Hoorn a large city fire place, especially the western part of the city was afflicted.
Horn chose in 1572 like Waterland and the entire zaanstreek, for the reformation and the Prince of Orange. Against the ' Spaniards ' is a heavy sea battle, the battle on the Zuiderzee. Hoornse ships were in that fight helped by residents from Horn and volunteers from the zaanstreek, Schermer and Waterland. The Commander of the Royal fleet, stadtholder Maximilian of Hénin-Liétard (Balboa), was captured. Bossuhuizen to the sleepers on the port is in facing bricks and paintings this battle beautifully displayed.

Join David as he shows you around the top 15 places to see in Istanbul! Istanbul is one of the only transcontinental cities on the planet, spreading across Europe and Asia Minor. As Turkey’s largest city, Istanbul is a bustling hub of culture, history and gastronomy – a cosmopolitan capital in every sense.
David begins in the oldest part of the city, the Sultanahmet District. He begins in the Hippodrome (circus), which served as the center of public life for the Greek, Roman, and Byzantine citizens. Present-day Sultan Ahmed Square has a handful of surviving remnants from ancient times.
Near Sultan Ahmed Square are two of Turkey’s most visited attractions, steps from one another – the Ayia Sofia (Hagia Sophia) and Blue Mosque. The Ayia Sofia is now a museum, but was built as an Eastern Orthodox Basilica in 535 A.D. It was a Christian church for over 900 years before the Ottomans used it as a Mosque for another 481 years. It was the largest house of worship in the world for over 1,000 years!
Across the square is the Blue Mosque. Its name comes from the blue tiles used to decorate the interior. Nearby sits the stunning 15th century Topkapi Palace that served as the home and governmental seat for the Ottoman sultans until the 1850s. A tour will reveal beautiful stonework and intricately decorated staterooms, as well as a crown jewel and Imperial treasury exhibition.
After the palace, David takes us to the Archaeology Museum to show us some of what was uncovered in Istanbul. Perhaps the most impressive thing on display is the Sarcophagus of Alexander the Great with its detailed reliefs depicting Alexander’s life of successful conquering.
Not too far from the museum is the Basilica Cistern – a damp and dark subterranean cavern used to collect water for the city. The Medusa heads were likely stolen from a nearby Greco-Roman city to support the columns. Medusa’s face provided a warning against anyone who dared to tamper with the water supply.
The next day, David heads over to the 300-year-old Cağaloğlu Hamamı for a Turkish bath. This Hammam provides full-service spa treatments including scrubbing, steam baths, and massages. Definitely a MUST experience when in Istanbul.
David then heads to the shores of the Bosphorus for a scenic boat ride along the strait. From the water you’ll get panoramic vistas of the Istanbul skyline and get to enjoy view of other areas of this enormous city.
After arriving back on land, David heads to the Beyoğlu District to beautiful pedestrian-friendly Istiklal Street, or “Independence Avenue” for some lunch. It spans about 1.4 kilometers and is the perfect place for shopping and dining. You can walk or take the Nostalgic Tram in either direction. The end of Istiklal Street takes David into the heart of Istanbul, Taksim Square. In the center of the square is the Monument of the Republic (1928) commemorating the formation of the Turkish Republic in 1923.
Onto the Galata District to see a Whirling Dervish show at the Galata Museum. This 800-year old practice of spinning is used as a physical form of meditation. It is a mysterious and beautiful site to behold.
You can’t visit the Galata District and not notice the Galata Tower. It looks over Istanbul and provides 360-degree views of the city, the Bosphorus, Golden Horn and landmarks.
After all that sightseeing, David works up an appetite so he heads to the Karaköy waterfront to enjoy a cheap meal with a 5-star view. Nearby is the fish market. You can’t get to the Karaköy or Galata without crossing the Galata Bridge. From here you’ll see the skylines of both Sultanahmet and Galata districts.
Lastly, David goes out to one of the most exclusive entertainment complexes in the world. Reina sits along the Bosphorus and offers world-class dining, nightclubs, and beautiful ambiance. Dress to impress and make dinner reservations so you can stay after to party!
