When you think of Edam, you probably think of the delicious cheese; but there's more than cheese to this wonderful Dutch town! See for yourself with a privately owned apartment in Edam.
Edam is an amazing place to walk around. The beautiful houses look onto the many canals in the town, which are often filled with houseboats. The town is surrounded with farm land, giving amazing countryside views out of the town. The 15th Century St. Nicolas church is worth taking a look around, as well as the large town hall and the Gothic Carillon tower. Edam is a wonderful place to relax surrounded by beautiful landscapes and buildings.
But, of course, there's the cheese. Available from the weekly market every Wednesday is perfect for tourists wanted to sample the towns product. The Edam museum lets you see how the cheese is made, all within a traditional 16th Century Dutch house. Of course this makes the town perfect for a self catering holiday - just as long as you like cheese!
The Netherlands has plenty of other great places to see. Edam is right next to the capital city of Amsterdam, where you can take a bike ride round the city or take a boat and see the beautiful canals. A private apartment in Amsterdam is ideal for seeing the sights of the Netherlands.
15 minutes from Amsterdam is the city of Haalem, perfect for seeing all there is to see about Dutch culture. With museums, theatres and cinemas, a short term rental bungalow in Haalem will keep you entertained for your whole trip!
