Canal Walk Pumerend

(3,0 km)
During the Canal Walk you walk along the existing and filled in canals of Purmerend. Along the way you will learn about the history of this once water-rich city.

Located right in between the Purmer, Beemster and Wormer lakes, before the reclamaton, Purmerend has had many different functions over the centuries. The prosperity of the past is reflected in beautiful architectural styles and idyllic streets. Don't forget to look around you! Do you see the traces that history has left behind? The vistas? And the connection between old and new?
