- The Waterland Museum -

Maybe you wondered what a City Hall in The Netherlands looked like in the deeppast? Or maybe, not until today? In Purmerend you'll find one, the Waterlandmusuem is situated in what used to be... Purmerend Cityhall! And some parts of the city hall remained to be untouched!

Also to be found: the largest collection of Jugendstil pottery which was made in Purmerend, a presentation about graphic artist Jac. Jongert. As well as the history of Purmerend, plus some paintings worth seeing indeed!

Other than that this museum explains the history of all the Green Lands north of Amsterdam pretty well :)

- Dinner in Volendam -

If the weather is kind of friendly, a small walk through the city of Purmerend is included! But one way or the other, we'll be having dinner in Volendam.

Volendam is a small and very authentic village at the coast of the Markermeer and the Gouwzee.

At the waterfront inside this village you'll find... Some very good places to have an authentic and payable Dutch Dinner!

So... Sign up and enjoy this fast out of season daytrip together with Culti Group!
