Hoorn was once one of the most important ports in the wider region. That is why you can still see beautiful monuments that remind us of ancient wealth.
The route starts at Van der Valk Hotel Restaurant Hoorn. After an overnight stay you will hit the road - but you can also park here alone and enjoy coffee and apple pie! From here you can take a nice city walk through Hoorn. This monumental town with its many historic buildings is the unofficial capital of the West Friesland region and part of Hoorn is a protected cityscape. From the Westerdijk you can enjoy a beautiful view over the Markermeer.
After Amsterdam, Hoorn was the most important port in the area for centuries. You can still see a lot of this rich history in the old city center. Due to the many beautiful monumental buildings, this part enjoys a protected cityscape. You pass the buildings of the Westfries Museum and the beautiful Waag from 1609. On the Grote Oost you see one old building after the other. You will also walk along the sixteenth-century Oosterpoort, the only remaining city gate in Hoorn.
