What to see in Hoorn

Hoorn, nestled on the shores of the Ijsselmeer, is a Dutch gem steeped in maritime history. With its well-preserved 17th-century architecture and charming canals, it evokes the Dutch Golden Age. Museums like the Westfries Museum celebrate its cultural heritage. Hoorn's waterside ambience and historic charm make it a delightful destination.

Hoorn’s maritime legacy is deeply woven into the fabric of the town and exploring this heritage is a must for any visitor. Start your maritime journey at the Hoorn Museumharbor, located along the town's picturesque waterfront. Here, you'll find a remarkable collection of meticulously restored historic ships, many dating back to the 17th century. Among these vessels, the Halve Maen stands out—an authentic replica of the ship Henry Hudson sailed when he discovered what is now New York. As you stroll along the quays, you'll be transported back in time, surrounded by the sights and sounds of an era when Hoorn was a bustling trading and shipping hub.

Hoorn’s well-preserved historic old town is a captivating blend of architectural charm, cobbled streets, and scenic canals. Exploring this enchanting quarter is like stepping back in time. Begin your exploration at Grote Noord, the central square at the heart of Hoorn's old town. It's surrounded by a delightful mix of historic facades, inviting cafes and boutique shops. Dominating the square is the Waag, an imposing 17th-century weighhouse that has served various purposes over the centuries. Today, it stands as an emblematic landmark where you can savour a coffee or meal while relishing the charming ambience.

With its prime location along the Ijsselmeer, Hoorn offers ample opportunities for waterside dining, leisurely walks and outdoor activities. De Haven van Hoorn is a popular waterfront restaurant that provides a delightful culinary experience with a view. Situated along the harbour, it offers an ideal setting to enjoy a meal on the terrace while gazing at passing boats and soaking in the ambience. The menu often features fresh seafood, paying homage to Hoorn's maritime heritage. Dining here is not just a gastronomic delight; it's a sensory journey that immerses you in the town's maritime spirit.
