Monnickendam, a picturesque town at the Gouwzee, was granted the privileges of a town on 25 February 1355. Dozens of monuments are a reminder of the later period of great prosperity. Today you will find a great choice of restaurants. The annual events like The Opera Night in August, Halloween in October and in December The Street Theatre are of wide fame.

There are many places in the surroundings of Monnickendam worth visiting. The former island of Marken, Broek in Waterland, Edam and Volendam may not be missed. Hire a boat or rent a bike? It is just around the corner of the B&B.
