Published: 03/03/2019
Slootdorp (Noord-Holland)
This TTT starts in Amsterdam and is mainly about beautiful roads for a large part along the Markermeer and the IJsselmeer *. Between these 2 lakes is Enkhuizen and you are already halfway the route, time for some goodies.

* The Markermeer is a lake in the Netherlands, located between Noord-Holland and Flevoland. On the northeast side it borders the IJsselmeer, of which it is actually the southwestern compartment, separated by a dike.
The IJsselmeer was created by concluding part of the Zuiderzee. The Afsluitdijk was completed on 28 May 1932 and the official name change took place on 20 September 1932. The lake was named after the river IJssel, which flows into it. (Source: Wikipedia).

After lunch we find the dyke up again until Medemblik, then we go in the direction of Winkel and then to the Amstelmeer **, where we drive to the end of the bank in Den bank where we can enjoy the coffee while enjoying a cup of coffee. view over the Wadden Sea. ***
** The Amstelmeer is a lake located on the west side of Wieringen in North Holland. The lake is especially popular among windsurfers. (Source: Wikipedia).
*** The Wadden Sea is the inland sea between the Wadden Islands and the North Sea on the one hand and the mainland of the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark on the other. The area stretches between Den Helder in the Netherlands and Esbjerg in Denmark, has a length of 500 km and a width of 20 km on average. (Source: Wikipedia).

Because I have not driven this route (yet) myself, this route gets 3 stars.

About this region
North Holland (Dutch: Noord-Holland, pronounced [ˌnoːrt ˈɦɔlɑnt] (listen)) is a province of the Netherlands in the northwestern part of the country. It is located on the North Sea, north of South Holland and Utrecht, and west of Friesland and Flevoland. In November 2019, it had a population of 2,877,909 and a total area of 4,092 km2 (1,580 sq mi), of which 1,430 km2 (550 sq mi) is water. From the 9th to the 16th century, the area was an integral part of the County of Holland. During this period West Friesland was incorporated. In the 17th and 18th century, the area was part of the province of Holland and commonly known as the Noorderkwartier (English: "Northern Quarter"). In 1840, the province of Holland was split into the two provinces of North Holland and South Holland. In 1855, the Haarlemmermeer was drained and turned into land. The provincial capital is Haarlem (pop. 161,265). The province's largest city and also the largest city in the Netherlands is the Dutch capital Amsterdam, with a population of 862,965 as of November 2019. The King's Commissioner of North Holland is Johan Remkes, who has served since 2010. There are 51 municipalities and three (including parts of) water boards in the province. The busiest airport in the Netherlands and Europe's third-busiest airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, is in North Holland.

View route collection The 10 most beautiful car and motorcycle routes in North Holland
About this route collection
Noord-Holland, Alkmaar, the cheese market, who doesn't know it? But not only this, North Holland has dunes, polders and peat meadow areas where you can walk and cycle to your heart's content. And there is water, lots of water. From the North Sea coast to the IJsselmeer coast, this area also exhibits great contrasts from the dunes to West Friesland. For example, dynamic urban areas can coexist with unspoilt, picturesque villages. And empty, strictly designed land reclamations are right next to whimsical peat meadow areas full of chattering birds.

No, if you are looking for clarity, you have nothing to look for here. But those who love this colorful procession of landscapes, villages and cities such as Alkmaar and Hoorn where you can go for fun, art and culture will undoubtedly return here.

You can't just walk and cycle in Noord-Holland, how about discovering Noord-Holland by car or motorcycle? For this, the MyRoute app RouteXpert has compiled a Top 10 of Car and Motor Routes for you.
