    Church of Durgerdam

    Church of Durgerdam
    1 more image

    There has been a church at this place since 1642. The church was completely rebuilt in 1840, using material from the old church.

    The church is located about 100m inland from the dike, on the road next to hotel-restaurant De Oude Taveerne (http://www.deoudetaveerne.nl/). The Chapel in the village (see my Durgerdam page) should not be mistaken for the church.

    Goudriaan route, Durgerdam

    by Pijlmans Updated May 21, 2009
    Goudriaan route
    4 more images

    The Goudriaan route, a hike of about 12 km, starts and finishes just outside the village Durgerdam, close to the wind turbine. There is a big parking.

    The hike is marked with blue stickers with "Goudriaan route", see the pictures.

    Actually, the description of the hike says it is 12 km, but it seemed to be more like 10 km to us.

    The hike goes along the dyke, and through the polder. We saw many birds during the walk.

    The only drawback of this hike is that you're walking on rather narrow cycle-tracks, and there may be many bikes passing....

    Nature surrounds Durgerdam. Wetlands that attract an enormous amount of birds form a natural reserve where they feed on enormous amounts of natural foodreserves. Birdwatchers do enjoy this "waterland" that surrounds Durgerdam especially and many species of our feathered friends can be seen here.

    Sailing on the Markermeer

    Boats at Durgerdam (seen from the water)
    1 more image

    Sailing (and other watersports) is the number one attraction that Durgerdam offers the people that do not only come for the peace and quiet that this small village under Amsterdam offers. Along the dike on which Durgerdam is situated long wooden boardwalks are full with sailboats of every seize. In the lake some "Skutsjes" are floating, the most typical boat tha Holland has to offer (flat bottom boats, traditionally from Frysia and Holland). It's a joy to see the boats pass, but even more to be on one of them. Sailing is truely something that gives you connection with the Dutch spirit.

    Durgerdam, to get out of the busy citylife

    A long row of dikehouses, that's Durgerdam
    1 more image

    Durgerdam is THE Amsterdam attraction if you want to get out of the city-business and noise. This rather unknown part of Amsterdam is just a half hour (public) bus tour away from the centre or a 20 minutes drive and will take you in with a smile. the friendly village along the dike is on one end looking over wide wetlands and on the other side over the Marker Meer (meer = lake). A great trip for just a morning or afternoon out of Amsterdam city.

    Raadhuis

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Sep 4, 2011
    Durgerdam Raadhuis

    The Durgerdam Raadhuis (Council house) also known as the Chapel, dates from 1687.

    It was build after a fire destroyed all the wooden houses along the dike in May 1687.
