Now, let's take a walk through Edam itself.
A lovely canal right next
to the Cheese market
The Town Hall was built in
1737 in the Louis XIV style. The left foreground shows
part of the dam, and the right-hand side you can see people sitting out at the Dam Hotel's
open cafe. A pleasant way to pass a sunny afternoon.
Canals are here,
There is much I have not
mentioned here -- the Great Church, the oldest wooden house built about
the museum, as well as the houses themselves: testament to the prosperity found in the Edam of the 16th
and 17th centuries. A walk through time, and one of the prettiest places in Noord Holland.
