Grote Sint Laurenskerk

Reviewed By WorldTravelOne - Breukelen Ut

This landmark church building is now in use as a huge exposition center for art work. The church is even part of the Dutch 'museum card' (museumkaart; costs about 60 euro's for a year) with which you can visit museums in almost every town of Holland.

Buitencentrum Schoorlse Duinen Schoorl

Reviewed By bas k - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The nature reserve at Schoorl offers vast forest,the highest dunes in the Netherlands and a large beach. I like the very old church of the old village of Schoorl; a nice area to explore after a bike tour or walk in the nature reserve.

het strand van Bergen aan Zee

Reviewed By MickeyandDora - Greater London, United Kingdom

The Netherlands are blessed with endless wide sandy Beaches and lots of villages-on-the-beach. Bergen-aan-Zee is one of the friendliest, unassuming but lovely parts. Because the beach is so wide and stretches literally along the coast from north to south, you can always find some space and it never gets to crowded. Shallow waters, watched over by lifeguards. Great day out, couple of lovely restaurants and coffee places nearby.

Strand Egmond aan Zee

Reviewed By Hanneke_8 - Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Egmond has a nice wide beach to walk. However, the dunes are not very high here. You can see the roofs of homes and hotels over the dunes. Quite different in that respect from Zandvoort or Ijmuiden. The place has a typical touristy feel to it, but it is enjoyable. Several nice beach cafe's on the beach, which were open although it was the middle of the winter. All in all, an enjoyable beach to visit.

Museum BroekerVeiling

Reviewed By MijnlieverdFH - Amsterdam

Dispatching goods by auction was done here. Inside the inner sections of the covered complex were the piers or landing platforms. Herein goods were received for auction. The means of transport was through the water and the products were auctioned in bulk.
An interesting way to facilitate marketing of products. I guess there was a certain control of the prices of specific products. it might depend on a season when crops can be harvested.

De Ruinekerk van Bergen uit 1597

Reviewed By Eyekaytoo - Leverkusen, Germany

The ruins of this church are a prominent feature of this up market north Dutch town. The area surrounded by little boutique shops and nice, attractive places to eat and drink. The manicured lawns around the ruined walls are a testament to the general good order of everything in this lovely little town.

Klimduin

Reviewed By KRwatching - Rotherham, United Kingdom

A steep sand dune leading to a very large woodland with plenty of paths and cycle routes. A lovely area to walk. If the hill is too much for you to manage there is a path to the right behind an hotel that is more manageable. There are bars and cafes at the base of the hill for refreshments.
