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