After about half an hour of cycling through Noord, your pedalling will be rewarded by the sight of one of the most beautiful villages in the region. Durgerdam is a tiny hamlet on the shores of the IJsselmeer, where you can view some traditional wooden houses, a Protestant church dating from 1687 and a landscape of wetlands and polders. Another attraction is Durgerdam’s marina, where you can gaze at luxurious yachts and envy the people entering the private sailing club. Historically, the village was closely linked with the former Zuiderzee (now IJsselmeer) and for centuries the Durgerdammers worked in shipping, fishing and trade in general. Today, it's the quiet and the beauty of the water that attracts visitors to this lovely little settlement.
