The Trip Starts in Beautiful 17th Century Hoorn to the small middle age City of Medemblick. Then you can take a boat to 17th Century City Enkhuizen and Return... More

I am a fan of trains, especially locomotives and travelling in a train pulled by a steam locomotive was like a dream come true. We took this train from Medemblik to Hoorn on a nice summer afternoon. The trains chugs along very slowly, and lets you feel the thrill of riding in a 1926 era carriage while viewing the beautiful... More

Take the old steam train and travel between two old cities in the north of Holland. A treat for the whole familiy and couples alike.

.... and especially old steam locomotives, then this is a must-do when in the area. Run by volunteers this leisurely 'company' is one of the best !

The glorious weather maybe helped but the day out on the steam tram was a good way to step back in time while you cross the polder. The day ticket at just over 20 euro covers both the tram and the boat but I only did the tram it pays to check the timetable on line before visiting as some... More

This is a top tip for a day out from Amsterdam if you are in the Netherlands for a few days and have bought a Museum Card (www.museumkaart.nl or available directly from a lot of the big museums in Amsterdam). The reason for this is that both the steam train fare and the paddle steamer fare across the Ijselmeer are... More

The steam train and boat trip, with a round robin ticket from Hoorn for about $20 is really good value, and a very nice way to spend most of a day. The Zuidermuseum at Enkhuisen (the boat calls here) is also well worth a visit if you are interested in social history, though perhaps is not the best value at... More
