Holidaypark Zijpersluis


Earlier the area was a water parts of the region, the Geestmerambacht. That came through the regular floods caused by a passage in the Schoorlsen dunes. Through the many water arose a unique agricultural culture to thousands of small-usually oblong Islands. At the end of the 1960s, there has been a large-scale consolidation, so that most of the Islands disappeared. Only a small, protected area still remains. The agricultural products that were built on the small islands, could be transported only by barge. Length, slide the barge with a Kloet, a stock of about four feet. A hard chore for the gardener, the shallow barges of l 'Kloetend' between the Islands, to maneuver. Because the vegetables were transported crops cabbage but mainly per barge, it was so easy for auction without to offer transhipment to buyers. Thus arose a ship auction in Broek op Langedijk and Noord-Scharwoude. Commemorating the auction remains Broeker veiling as a monument and for young and old, to visit. Here, visitors can buy vegetables even in the historical building of the auction. Consider the clock # from # 1903 at the right moment and feel as a trader of the day. You can make also a nice tour of the former empire of the thousand islands, explore the nature reserve, where vegetables were grown. In the Museum, an exhibition is to see a school class long Dijker and schoolyard from the 1920s, as well as a collection of wooden ships. There is also a restaurant. The Museum consists of a series of gardens with an old Orchard, a Petting Zoo and a shipyard. You can admire also the reconstruction of the Dutch Damschuit.
