Appingedam is a small town with many original medieval premises that's still be found in the centre. The most famous sight is the hanging kitchens over the Damsterdiep canal. It's fun to see this special sight but seeing the beautiful bridges over the canal is also very nice.

Thinking about historic Dutch an Flemish towns with stunning views the first town that comes to mind is Bruges, the town where time stopped three centuries ago. However, there are other quiet towns, not on the radar of main stream tourism, where suddenly a stunning view of ancient buildings over a quiet canal can be had. Appingedam in the very north east corner of the province of Groningen is such a town. Appingedam has a well preserved very compact town center with a 12th century church. Walk with your back to the church along the passage with the Dutch Tourist Agency on the left hand corner. Cross the pedestrianized shopping street and approach the pedestrian bridge over the quiet canal. On this bridge you have the stunning view of the 18th century buildings with the "hanging kitchens" over the water. These buildings were initially intended as warehouses on the waterfront. When these buildings were converted for families to live in, the "hanging kitchens" were added to expand the buildings in order to have more space to live in. A pleasing photo spot.

The Kitchens should be viewed from the bridges while walking the town. The town is full of history of life in the dutch countryside centuries ago.

We were visiting my friends parents who stay in Appingedam. I am not sure if i would have visited it otherwise. We were pleasantly surprised to see this small town / Village which still has managed to retain the dutch flavor. I loved everything about this town the roads the small bridges, beautiful houses along the streams and the hanging kitchen ! I liked the hanging kitchen because i liked the town. I could not see anything special besides that they are hanging over the water body and there only three left. But I would love to visit Appingedam again just to experience the calmness and the serenity of the surroundings.

Appingedam has hanging kitchens above the canal. It's a very nice little town in the northern part of the Netherlands.

I was born in this historic little town in the early 1950's, returned to my home "Away from Home" on several occassions during the past sixty years. The one thing that I will always remember is the great sites of the "Hanging Kitchens". My grandfather took me fishing in this location in my younger days! Every time I return to my old home town, we will go down to see this historic structure!

I had read about this unusual town feature so we included this town in our exploration of the area from our base in Groningen. We found the kitchens as we walked around the pretty streets festooned with flowers. We were also lucky to notice the official in charge of raising the the small bridge canal racing along to raise the bridge to let craft pass through. Probably not a single destination but it enhanced our day as we toured the area.

Besides seen from the small bridge by walking you will also have a nice view when taking a 1 hour boat excursion (4 Euro).
