Everywhere you look, you can still find traces of the fishing and shipping industries. Discover the camping and recreation facilities at Vliegenbos Park, the city’s oldest wooded park. Time spent on a delightful terrace on Nieuwendammerdijk brings to life the 18th century spirit of this area, when the gabled buildings served as inns and ferry houses.
