Now that we dove into Katwijk’s fishing culture, it’s time to visit the old inland harbor.
From the crossroads, walk down the street Noordeinde.
Cross over, go up the stairs and take a look over the harbor.
Due to it’s inland situation this harbor was designed with a round end part: a turning basin.
This turning basin is a wider body of water that allowed ships to turn and reverse their direction.
Tip for another time: take a boattrip to Leiden.
