De Beemster

Since 1999 the Beemster has been listed on the UNESCO world heritage list. The fertile clay in the Beemster has allowed a large number of farms to be operational. So agrarians, farmers who grow flower bulbs, fruit farms and dairy farms are present in the Beemster. A trip through the varied Beemster with its straight roads (whereupon you hardly can get lost) is to be recommended.

Lovely cities in the vicinity

From De Beemsterkamer Amsterdam, Alkmaar, Zaandam, Hoorn and Volendam can be reached by car within half an hour. From Purmerend, which can be reached within approximately three minutes by car and ten minutes by bike, there are different possibilities for using public transport to reach the above places. De Beemsterkamer itself is also accessible by bus: at the nearby crossroads (300 m.) is a bus stop.

Riding a bike

By bike, one can, for example, hike around the Beemster and visit small towns like De Rijp and Oosthuizen, or one can bike to historical and charming towns at the IJsselmeer as Edam, Volendam and Monnickendam. A visit to the Zaanse Schans is also a possibility.  If you are not able to take your own bike along, there is a possibility to rent bikes.

Fishing and golf

Because De Beemsterkamer is located a five minute walk from the Noord Hollandskanaal, people who like angling, can take along their angling rod. Fans of golf can enjoy the 18-hole course located in Purmerend.

There is much more to do...

In the vicinity of De Beemsterkamer are in addition to the above options several opportunities for recreation, such as walking, renting a canoe or boat in Jisperveld or a visit to the Leeghwaterbad, a large swimming pool in Purmerend.
