Discover typical villages in North Holland
Scharwoude, Volendam, Edam
Whether the Atgereswere mentioned in 922 or the Asthusa Minora mentioned in 1292 is the origin of Oosthuizen will always remain a mystery. Als there is little known about the history of Beets, although the first stone church was probably built around 1360. The church of Scharwoude disappeared in 1375 with the whole village in the Zuiderzee and that was not the only time. The village as it is today only came into being in 1854. Grosthuizen actually means nothing but Groot Oosthuizen, while Avenhorn was called Lutticdrecht until 1494. Schardam was first mentioned as Scaderdam in 1319 and has played a significant role in the water management of North Holland for hundreds of years. Historical Edam was granted city rights by Count Willem in 1357, mainly for self-interest during the Hoekse and Kabeljauwse disputes. Volendam, originally Follendam, may be bigger than Edam, it is still a village. A village whose inhabitants distinguish themselves from the rest of the Netherlands in terms of customs and thus put Volendam on the tourist map.
