'Laag Holland'

Two of the seven Dutch reports on the World Heritage List of the United Nation Cultural Organisation are located at ‘Laag Holland’. This marks the great historical value of the area: old, beautiful and one of a kind in the world. The defence line of Amsterdam was reported on the World Heritage list in 1996, as well as the Beemster in 1999.

Of course, you have to see these beautiful sightings. There is plenty to do. Hiking, biking and sailing. If you have difficulty walking, you can go by car as well.
