In the 17th and 18th century Broek, as it’s local inhabitants call it, was a popular village for the extremely rich merchants of this era. To give you an impression, one of the most famous was Neeltje Pater. She left an inheritance behind of approximately 7.5 million guilders when she passed away in 1789. She is often called the Bill Gates of the 18th century.

Your guide, a member from the Historical Society Oud Broek in Waterland, will tell you all about it in an interesting and cosy walking tour of around 1-1.5 hour (depending on your  time).
You can enjoy coffee, lunch or dinner in all different price categories.

Tip: If you have a full day you can extend your stay with the rent of a whisper boat (broekerbootverhuur.nl) or a visit to the more touristic villages of Marken and Volendam.

 
We are sure you will love the experience!
