The West Frisian Medemblik was plundered by Johan van Selbach's army in 1517. And in 1555 a huge city fire took place in the town. To make matters worse, after 300 years, Medemblik increased to become a port city by using the Noordholland canal. But then! In 1960, the city increased strenght in water sports and until today, Medemblik is known as a very popular warter sports city.
During a walk through the atmospheric Medemblik, you will see a lot of this ancient time. For example, Castle Radboud was built by Floris V in the late 13th century. The bakery museum “The Old Bakery” is a typical picture of the past. In this museum you will see attributes and machines, which the baker used in his daily work and it is located in the historic center of the city. And what do you think of the Dutch Steam Machine Museum, which is located in the former steam mine 'Vier Noorder Koggen'? Here you can see what steam is all about, the museum keeps the history and development of steam engines alive.
But of course you can also choose to walk through Medemblik at your convenience. It's beautiful! And everywhere you look, you'll see old monuments and beautiful scenery. Success guaranteed!
