Meet a guide at 10am or 1:30pm at your Enkhuizen hotel, cruise port, or at the town’s train station, then learn the basics of Enkhuizen history as you follow a route into the heart of the historic port town.
Set a pace that’s good for your group, and walk along the bustling harbor and the town’s main shopping street, where your guide will share the quirky history of building ships in bottles—the town is home to the world’s largest collection of ships in bottles. See the Dromedary Defense Tower and the town’s South Church, or Zuiderkerk, which houses a splendid pipe organ built in 1621.
Stroll the Snouck van Loosenpark, a green space that was part of a 19th-century social housing project. This 2-hour walking tour concludes as the South Sea Museum, or Zuiderzee Museum, where you can keep exploring maritime history on your own. At the end of the tour, your guide can help you plan the rest of your time in Enkhuizen, with tips on the best places to eat, drink, see, and explore.
