About Broek in Waterland

According to our guide, Henk Looijestein, it is a beautiful village that has been a touristic highlight for centuries. Kings visited the village in the 18th century, and there are many stories to be told about this place.

It is new addition to the NIAS excursion repertoire, so let us know afterwards what you think. Old-fashioned, too rural, too cliché, too far away…anything.
