Historic Boating Map

For centuries, West Frisian farmers and market gardeners sailed every day with their barges through the ditches to their scattered fields. Although much has changed in the West Frisian landscape since the land consolidation, elements can still be found that are characteristic of the development of the area.

Together with Vereniging Oud Enkhuizen and Vereniging Oud Stede Broec, we have created a handy and fun boating map: the Historical Boating Map. Pick it up for free at VVV Enkhuizen this summer or download it here.
