Attractions

Stoomtram Hoorn-Medemblik

HOORN NH

Travel through Time by Steamtram and Boat! The engine whistles and the fireman puts coal onto the fire. Wooden partitions creak, wheels sing and steam hisses. Get on board the Museumstoomtram for one of the most exciting journeys through time, during an experience from a different era. In the Historic Triangle between the ancient 'Zuiderzee' towns of Hoorn and Medemblik steamtrams meander from village to village across the Westfrisian countryside. A connecting old-fashioned steamer sails along the coast of lake IJsselmeer to the old town of Enkhuizen or vica versa.
