Medemblik

Medemblik is the oldest town in Friesland. In 1289 it was granted the city rights of Count Floris V. This same count also had the well-known castle Radboud, which stands at the harbor entrance. In the Golden Age Medemblik experienced a short flowering period as a port city, but soon she was put in the shadow by Hoorn and Enkhuizen. Remains from this heyday are the Bonifatius Church, the former Waag and the 17th century houses with their beautiful historic faƧades. The cozy old town is within walking distance of the harbor. Other attractions such as Castle Radboud and the Bakery Museum are also within walking distance. In the summer, many sailing competitions are organized off the coast of Medemblik.
