    Streets and Canals of Edam

    by Martin_S. Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Each and every city, town or village that we visited in the Netherlands gave us the opportunity for so many photos, I guess they would be called "photogenic" and we found many "Kodak" points (places where you should take a picture ;O))
    The canals and streets seem to be equal partners in the makeup of the town and take up equal space as well. But keep an eye out for the unusual houses that seem to show a personality all their own, like the series of "crooked" houses in the last picture, sort of reminded me of a group of friends returning home after a long night at the local pub, the two on the sides supporting their friend in the middle.

    Bridges of Edam

    by Willem_oa Written Sep 3, 2002

    Edam has several canals which are crossed by beautiful white lifting bridges. You're bound to encounter several on a stroll around town.

    My favorite bridges are on the Oosterkade, in the Eastern end of Edam.
