    The city of Purmerend has a rich history. Lying on the then unreclaimed Purmer, Beemster and Wijde Wormer lakes, it has had a number of different functions over the centuries. During this walk, you pass existing and filled-in canals and by reading the information panels you learn a lot about the history of this once so water-rich city. You see the prosperity of the past reflected in the beautiful architectural styles and idyllic streets. Don’t forget to look around you! Can you see the traces that history has left behind? The vistas? And the connection between old and new?
