Around Waterrijk
De Rijp, Grootschermer, Driehuizen, West-Graftdijk, Akersloot, Uitgeest, Spijkerboor

The famous hydraulic engineer Jan Adriaanszoon Leeghwater once called De Rijp - his birthplace - "the best village in Holland". De Rijp was once a bustling fishing town known for its herring fishing and whaling. The traces of this water-rich history are still visible. De Rijp has a 17th century center with beautiful monuments and picturesque streets, which is definitely worth a walk through.
