Monnickendammer Fishdays

Monnickendam in its heyday was all smokehouses and shipyards. Its “Fish Days” will take you back to a bygone age when many of its inhabitants worked in the fish processing trade. Unlike Volendam – where the fish was unloaded – Monnickendam was known mainly for its processing: the handling and smoking of various sorts of fish: eel, mackerel and herring.

Experience for yourself how for centuries Monnickendam and its picturesque harbour was a bustling scene of fish smokers, fish nets and fishing boats. And how fish smokers sent the city up in smoke.
Taste fish that is still smoked using traditional methods.
