    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    Edam, a small city only a few kilometers away from Amsterdam and the "Droogmakerij de Beemster" (Polder de Beemster). This city is famous because of its cheese and the cheese market. The cheese market was revived in 1989 as a re-enactment for tourists. It is held each July and August on the Wednesdays from 10:30 to 12:30 on the Jan van Nieuwenhuizen Square in front of the "Waag" (weigh house). There are two other cheese markets in the province of Norht-Holland: Alkmaar and Hoorn. But Woerden and Gouda have their own too. Only Woerden is commercial and not re-enacted.

    There are a few sites to visit in Edam: the "Grote" or "Sint Nicolaas Kerk" (Big or Saint Nicolas Church, one and the same church with cathedral dimensions), the cheese market, the Dam, and the nearby Edam Museum . This museum was founded in the oldest brick house of Edam. It was built in 1530/40 as a private house. Special feature is the floating cellar which rises or falls with the groundwater level.

    When in Edam you can visit Volendam too, their in the same municipality (Edam-Volendam) so it's only a short walk away.

    Eam is easily accessible by car and bus.

Like "BZN","Maribelle","Jan Smit" and "Nick and Simon". "BZN" scored a big world wide hit in the 70's with the song "Chanson D'Amour". Not very well known, but this band didn't start with making Palingpop, but with hard rock!

      Many restaurants and bars are in this town. With special day menu's, but mostly menu's with fish on it. Souvenir stores are there plenty as well. In some you can have photo's made while wearing local traditional clothing, also known as "klederdracht".

    • Alkmaar
      Note: Alkmaar has 11 Windmills!

      ‘Victory began in Alkmaar’. This saying refers to one of the most famous episodes in the history of Alkmaar: its defeat of the besieging Spaniards in 1573. The legacy of this rich and illustrious past is still in evidence in the cosy city centre. The canals with their characteristic drawbridges, the numerous historic buildings, the peaceful squares, the old facades and the narrow shopping streets give the center of the city its very special atmosphere. Girls says Alkmaar is such a great shopping city!

      Over the course of the centuries Alkmaar has developed into an medium-sized city. The people of Alkmaar are proud of ‘their’ Canada Square, the sparkling new cultural location where five major cultural institutions present a broad palette of exhibitions, theater, art, music, books and new media. For tourists, too, Alkmaar is a well-loved destination. There is of course the cheese market, that attracts thousands of people from all over the world, but the beach and the capital are both nearby. Alkmaar: cheese, coast, and culture!

      Alkmaar is located in a typical Dutch polder landscape, close to a major nature reserve with dunes, beach, woods and water, water everywhere. Few places in the Netherlands have such a wide variety in terms of natural splendour. In addition, Alkmaar is surprisingly close to Amsterdam and Schiphol. So more and more companies are opting for Alkmaar as an attractive location for their activities.

      Alkmaar is easily accessible by train from Amsterdam and (city) bus(es).

    • IJmuiden
      IJmuiden is a city in the Dutch province of North Holland, the main town of the municipality of Velsen. It lies about 17 km (10.3 mi) north of Haarlem. In the Roman era, this Velsen district was already inhabited, and archeological finds indicate there was a North Sea port of some regional importance built here. The town suffered heavy damage and demolition during World War II, because of its maritime importance.

      IJmuiden is a fairly new city in its present form, and only came into existence in the 1870s when the North Sea Canal was dug, connecting the Amsterdam harbors to the open sea. Before the present IJmuiden was built, the area was known as Breesaap; it was a desolate plain where only a handful of farmers strived to make a living. In 1851 the whole area was sold to the entrepreneurs Bik and Arnold, who finally set into motion plans that had been drawn up already since 1626. The first spade hit the ground on April 8, 1865.

      The IJmuiden name literally means “mouth of the IJ”, which is a hint to the importance the town has for the Amsterdam harbor. The name “IJmuiden” first appeared as IJ-muiden in lines written in 1848 by the professor and journalist (and, later, a liberal finance minister in the Van Lynden van Sandenburg Cabinet) Simon Vissering. The present IJmuiden form was eventually adopted in 1876, as the North Sea Canal was being completed in this section.

      In 1890 it had about 1,500 inhabitants, but boomed when the Koninklijke Nederlandse Hoogovens steelworks settled in IJmuiden. The statistical area IJmuiden, which includes the surrounding countryside, has a population of 30,466. The headquarters of the Koninklijke Nederlandse Redding Maatschappij is located in IJmuiden.
