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

if you are into trains, this is a very mice day out of Amsterdam. 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

Truly amazing day out and great for all ages. Allow time to wonder around the old station complex, signal box and workshops at Hoorn, which adjacent to the NS Mainline Station before your steam train trip begins. Wonderful trip thro the country side and a ferry journey onto Enhuizen is a wonderful way to end a perfect day out. If... More

A good day out indeed. Steam train ride from Hoorn to Medemblik followed by a cruise on the Zuiderzee to Enkhuizen. Watching the yachts tack in the strong wind added to the experience. Thoroughly recommended.

Enjoyed the steam ride to the coast where we then took the boat on the Zuiderzee to Enkhuizen. All inclusive in the ticket.

We took a train from Amsterdam Centraal to Hoorn (about 30 mins) and arrived in time to have lunch in Hoorn before we boarded the steam train. The train journey was about 1.5 hours and passed through typical dutch countryside including some cute little villages. There was one stop where people could get off and buy drinks and icecream. When... More

I arrived in good time for the tram ride so had a good look around the museum at Hoorn station. I was very lucky as a perfect English speaking guide had spotted my English registered motorbike: he insisted on giving me a personal guided tour to make sure that I did not miss anything. He explained that, as in the... More

We boarded the steam train from Hoorn -Medemblik return. What a lovely gracious experience. OK So the seats are wooden, not a problem, this is the way travel used to be. The views and sights are a must-a walk around Hoorn and Medemblik a pleasure. The cost is truly negligible and NOT expensive at all. Our recommendation-A MUST if in... More

Its a time-warp, with 1950s carriages and trains,transporting you to a time when train trips really had some style,like wooden bench seats, leather belts to keep windows secured in place and nattily uniformed conductors. Standing on the train balcony at the very back,furthest from the soot,noise and vibration, you will like a whistle-stop presidential candidate, as the train plods through... More

We took the boat from Enkhuizen to Medemblik, then the steam train to Hoorn and then back to Enkhuizen, another boat across the Ijsselmeer to Stavoren and then the train to Sneek before driving back to Veendam. All great fun and a full day out.
