The Waterland landscape is a scenic area located north of Amsterdam along the Markermeer (lake). Here you'll find green meadows, grazing cows, colourful villages and traditional farmhouses.

The area offers many activities for just about anyone who enjoys the
outdoors. Landschap Waterland is home to plenty of lakeside beaches
and swimming areas, in addition to numerous cycling and walking routes
through its small nature reserves and recreational areas like
Hemmeland. It's also popular among boaters who set sail on the
Markermeer and the region's other waterways.
