Enkhuizen was one of the most prosperous cities in the Netherlands in the 17th century. It gained power and influence as a member of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). Today, you can remind yourself of Enkhuizen's rich history with a walk through the old city, with its many villas, channels, churches, city walls and harbors.
