Blokzijl started as a settlement and later became a stronghold on the Zuiderzee. Here, Spanish enemy ships on their way inland were held back.

Later, Blokzijl became a lively trading town (unlike Vollenhove and Kuinre, Blokzijl was not a fishing village) and did business with merchants on the other side of the then Zuiderzee.

Walking past the Havenkolk in Blokzijl, it is noticeable that the atmosphere and the traditions have remained. Picturesque streets and pleasant terraces by the water create an atmosphere that you don’t often find in the Netherlands Blokzijl is certainly worth a visit!
