Historic Edam
The old city center of Edam is located within a former fortress. From the former city walls you have a beautiful view of the beautiful harbor. Because of the many old buildings Edam enjoys a protected cityscape. Walk at your leisure along the canals and beautiful facades and soak up that unique historical atmosphere. You pass the Zuidpolder, a polder mill from 1635. The fifteenth-century Grote Kerk is the largest hall church in the Netherlands.
