    Fishing still goes on

    Still many fishingboats are going out of the harbour to get a good catch. From the lighthouse one can see them leave towards the North and the North Sea. This is still the main drive of Urk, though tourism has also brought a welcome challenge with watersports and daytrip visitors.

    Urk traditional dress

    by Pavlik_NL Written Jul 12, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Here in this village there are still several men and women that stick to the traditional clothing of the fishermen and women of Urk. Slowly the people are however putting it away, but on the Urkerday many again put it on and walk around in style. This is always on the Saturday before Whit-sunday.
