This was an excellent way to see some of the smaller towns and country side of North Holland. We made a circle trip as others on this forum have mentioned. At the destination of this stoomtram we had time to grab some lunch and then hopped on the boat The "Friesland" and sailed to Enkhuizen. There we caught the regular... More

We took this day trip from Amsterdam and had a fantastic experience. We were lucky, in early November, to have beautiful, sunny weather. We had purchased the Museumkaart (as opposed to one of the other Amsterdam museum cards), even though it was more expensive, because it included the Stoomtram admission. Arrived in Hoorn well in advance of departure in order... More

We made the circular trip, starting at Enkhuizen. An attractive place to start - the station is next to the harbour and the boat is easy to find. The boat travels smoothly and quietly around the coast of Lake Ijsselmeer, with almost surreal views of historic sailing vessels. At Medemblik, the windmill ('The Shepherd') was open with volunteers. I would... More

This is a biased review, since I live in this area. Nevertheless, since this event is member of the 'museum card foundation' the trip is paid for by my museum card. Location This event is very easy to get to. The location is behind Hoorn railway station across the bridge. For people coming by car, they find a huge parking... More

I have planned this trip for a rainy day and our luck, on 3rd of May it was showering. have purchased a return ticket from Amsterdam central to Enkhuizen for 24.8 Eur. I have took a train from Amsterdam Central to Hoorn, and I just missed the Steam Engine train (which was good). I purchased combined ticket for Hoorn-Medemblik Steam... More

A group of 36 of us got on at Hoorn for the 1 hour 30 minute ride. There are drinks and snacks to purchase on the train and a couple of ladies in national costume came round explaining about the dress of the area in very good English. The museum at Medemblik is the workshop which travellers are free to... More

traveling by steam train to Medemblik, take the rudder boat to Enkhuizen and the normal train back to Hoorn. especially during Christmas there are special ride and dine arrangements.

A Dutch friend recommended this ride with old times train and we thought of giving it a try ! We took the train which was a wooden one and the ride was fantastic! They had people dressed with old times clothes that made our ride fascinating and even our teenaged kids were excited

This is a lovely little train ride in old tram-style carriages with wooden seats. It rattled along past the backs of houses and across the tulip fields on its way to Medemblik. We loved the little balconies at the end of the carriages where you can stand out in the air and smell the coal smoke from the engine. The... More

You can make a nice circle by taking the train to Enkhuizen, from there the boat Medemblik and than the steamtrain to Hoorn. from there you can take the train back to Amsterdam. Most people tak the train from Hoorn to Medemblik and tham the boat,... More
