Nice town, that has a lot of history. The grid of the city was copied by many other towns in the 14th century. The museums are worth visiting esp. the historic museum and the Jewish museum "De Sjoel".

The small village of Elburg is absolutely worth while to visit. The entire village is very well maintained and gives a good impression how the Dutch fishing villages looked in the past. When entering the village, one passes the massive Vischpoort. Also this building is...More

Every time that we visit there is something to do. Great bistros and restaurants. Nice sail boats to rent for a day or so. A nice fort and park to have a nice walk.
