Take a walk through historic Heemskerk and get to know the gems from the past that can be found here. Along the way you will pass two beautiful castles that are worth admiring. It's like stepping into a completely different world. Experience it for yourself in Heemskerk.

Two ancient castles
Train station Heemskerk is the starting point of this route. From here you walk to the edge of Heemskerk, where you can take a look at the beautiful Slot Assumburg. This castle probably dates back to the 13th century and it has long been a noble residence. Behind the castle you will find a historic garden that was inspired by the garden that was here around the year 1700. A few kilometers further you will find the second castle on this route: Marquette. This castle was also built in the 13th century. This structure was part of a long series of castles used for defense during the West Frisian Wars.

Walking through the dunes
A stone's throw from Heemskerk you will find a quiet nature reserve full of vast valleys that are bordered by parabolic dunes. Set course for the Heemskerk beach if you haven't finished walking after this trip. Here you can enjoy the nature around you while walking through the sand. Get a breath of fresh air as the end of an active day!

Still not tired of historic IJmond? Then this route through Velsen and this route Beverwijk are really something for you.
