    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On a very wet cold day this was the only place to be where hopefully i may warm up a little from the Hot Ovens inside.
    Once inside the first thing that hits you is the Wonderful smell of Baking Spices etc.

    It is however not only still a very active Bakery but a very nice working Museum too - it is a very ideal place for families with children.
    There is some information in English but the demonstrations of baking where in Netherlands language only - but you could work out everything that has happening from the practical demonstations.

    So you get to see demonstations of baking biscuits and an old fashioned ice cream maker - you can eat the ice cream fresh from the machine - you can buy Biscuits on your way out baked that day - and in the Cafe in side you can have a Biscuit and Coffee - so to taste before you buy - and this was on offer for 2 Euro when i was there.

    Inside the Museum there are lots of old Machines - some you can operate - and are some nice old collections - including old Biscuit Tins.

    There is a nice display of some Sugar Sculptures including a Steam Engine

    Tourists can take the train from here to the town of Hoorn on the IJsselmeer. Since we had to return by bike to Enkhuizen, this didn't apply to us. Maybe we should come back another day. The steam engine is a very small one compared to the one we saw in Simpelveld (http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/21d0b/6fb5a/)

    Have a look at the Castle Radboud. It was Count Floris V of Holland who demanded that a castle be constructed here to force the West Frisians to comply with his rule.

    After a long and arduous journey battling very wet and incliment weather - i arrived here as a cold drowned Rat.

    And i really needed to dry out a little before seeing the rest of Medemblik.

    So had a Cup of Coffee here and some Hot Soup.

    The Coffee was very nice and come with Whipped Cream in a seperate Glass.

    The Soup - Tomatoe Soup was very nice - very warming - it seemed like it had hints of Paprika - the bowl was very large and not only did you get very lovely Bread with some Cream Cheese Spread with Chives - but at the bottom of my soup bowl found numerous Meatballs which i did not expect - so the Soup was like a meal in itself.

    Plenty of Tables to sit outside on nice day with views of Boats on the Harbour.

    Favorite Dish: Tomatoe Soup

    (Never had a bad Soup in the Netherlands yet - all been excellent)

    From the outside is has that old look ... yet the inside has lost all it s old charm ... in my opinion it s too modernized.
