    Church

    Soon after the polder was dry they made plans to build a church. The church should be grand enough to please the rich merchants from Amsterdam so they asked two very wellknown architect, Hendrik de Keyser and Pieter Post to design and build this church.
    The project was finished in 1623. Inside the church is be big organ that recently has been restored to its former glory.
    Inside there are benches to sit on, if you look closely you can see that one side is higher then the other side. This was because the the watership management people were thought to be more important then the people managing the land. So they got higher benches to sit on.

    polyp

    The annual funfair at the end of July. It is THE event of each year. Since it is in the middle of summer hollidays its always busy and we hope for sunny weather.
    Feast lasts a week and all kinds activities take place next to the actual funfair. Large part of the "fun" takes places in the cafeĀ“s, beer is a major important ingredient in this week.
