  • When you walk around Volendam and approach Edam, you are surprised at the tranquility of the village, and the bucolic atmosphere that the canals that cross it give it. Really endearing. You have your handful of coffee shops, some Rte, your shop, chocolate...... What you need to be at your best 3 hours. Free parking (small) of 4 h. You can park without difficulty on the banks of the main canal leaving the village. Don't miss the views from its most emblematic bridges. Not even his church!!!

  • Looking for nostalgia? Then you're at the right place! A fifteen minute walk from the center of Edam lies the fortress that is part of the Amsterdam theorem. Enthusiastic volunteers can tell you all about the origins of the fortress and the way in which the fortress lived and worked. For both adults and children there is plenty to see and experience. If you are in Edam you should definitely visit.

  • Very nice place with some interesting exhibitions. There was a live roman army and vilage display which was very interesting for kids.
  • Very nice fortress with a lot of images from how it was in the past 1914.
  • Interesting fort and English guide available
  • Very interesting place. We are a family of four, children aged 8 and 10 (boy and girl). Some excellent rooms displaying war time artifacts to the local flora and fauna. We had a tour with Hein who spoke good English and was very knowledgeable on Dutch history. I would definitely recommend taking the time and have the tour you will learn so much more. Very good value for money and the children also enjoyed it.
  • Nice, nice, nice!!
