A walk through the historic Dutch town of Monnickendam will undoubtedly make you feel like a time traveler! Located in North Holland, this quaint town lies on the banks of Lake Markermeer. Its coastal location has allowed its shipping industry to thrive in the fourteenth century, and now, it is home to many water sports. Apart from that, you can also soak in the magnificence of the Speel Tower, the sole surviving structure which escaped the brunt of the severe fires in 1355. The monument also houses a museum which is a popular tourist haunt. Saint Nicholas’ Church and the Grote Kerk are also some of the must-see landmarks in Monnickendam. With medieval architecture and a scenic harbor, the town is as picturesque as any other coastal town that is featured on a postcard.
