    when you walk along the old houses of Hoorn and you look up, you'll find beautiful Gablestones. They had no numbering of the houses then, but you told someone then: "Go to the house next to the house with the sun"and also it tells you what kind of work or business there was in that building in earlear days. Like a fisherman, carpenter

    at the website you'll find all the Gablestones with the adress were you can find them.

    Writing on the wall at Hoorn

    by pieter_jan_v Written Jul 12, 2013
    WAT IS ER AAN DE HAND?

    I like this writing:

    WAT IS ER AAN DE HAND?
    AAN DE ENE KANT, JE VINGERS
    & JE ARM AAN DE ANDERE KANT

    Translated:
    WHAT IS AT YOUR HAND? (What's going on?)
    On one side your fingers
    & Your arm at the other side

    It's a fun response to somebody asking what is going on.

    Hoorn has many small alleys, some are called STEEG, but the best ones are called GLOP (even smaller).
