The beautiful old Enkhuizen is a picture with its canals and harbors. This walk leads you over the well-preserved rampart where you see beautiful city gates. You will also pass a few interesting small museums.

Nice museums
The route starts at Stationscafé de Haven van Enkhuizen, in the beautiful old station building from 1886. In the city you will find special museums, such as the Enkhuizer Almanak Museum, at the fish auction. In this small museum you can view all kinds of special archive documents from the almanac. The Bottle Ship Museum is also a nice little museum: here you can view miniature ships in bottles, in an old lockkeeper's house from the seventeenth century.

Monumental city gates
This beautiful historic walking route also leads you past the special city gates of Enkhuizen. For example, you will find water gates from the sixteenth century, which provided access to the city via the water. Enkhuizen is so connected to the water that a gate had to be made in the fortress wall at water level. You will discover, for example, the Oude Gouwsboom, the Boerenboom, but also the city gate, the Koepoort. This detached monumental building is slightly younger: it dates from 1649. A picture!
