Within 15 minutes you will have left the busy city center of Amsterdam behind you and start to discover the Netherlands beyond Amsterdam.

This dike, connecting the 2 northern provinces and protecting half of the country against the force of the North Sea is the gateway to the Amsterdam Lake District. here you will discover the Netherlands beyond the busy city of Amsterdam.

Next enter the Amsterdam Lake District in the province of Friesland. Where you will step back in time in the only open air museum village in the area. Get your camera’s ready because you want to capture this. Meet the villagers, have our local guide take you back in time to the craftsman, inside and old farmhouse, walk through the grasslands and take a picture with the cows in the meadows.

Next, will visit Hindeloopen. A beautiful, authentic city with only 900 inhabitants. Our local guide will await you and take you through the streets and alleys of this wonderful little city. Visit the painting shop of Mr. Roosje. The only painter in the city which still paints according to the typical Hindelooper style.

Wander through the streets, buy local souvenirs or have a drink in the harbour, with leisure time.

Your final stop will be at the beautiful Ir. D.F. Woudagemaal. A steam pumping station at the border of the Amsterdam Lake District. Where a local operator will give you entrance to the heart of this Steam Cathedral.
