Hoorn, a city you must feel!
Every year many thousands of people enjoy the beautiful city of Hoorn. You really need to see, hear, taste and feel Hoorn! Everywhere you go you will encounter the history of the powerful Dutch East India Company, that sent beautiful ships to trade with Asiatic countries during the 17th and 18th centuries. The history of the town is not just on show in the old centre; it can also be seen in the harbour. Time seems to be standing still here. The sails are hoisted, the decks scrubbed and you can almost still smell the spices that the Dutch East India Company brought back from trips to the Far East. The nicest way to get to know the city is to take a guided city walk. For more information visit the VVV Tourist Office at Roode Steen 1, HOORN. www.vvvhartvanholland.nl
