Barrel Bridge

This statue with the name ‘Maatjes’ symbolizes the 5 villages that together form the municipality of Katwijk and also their connection with the fish-and herring trade.

Herrings were stored in herring barrels. In the summer, Katwijk pays a tribute to the barrels by building a ‘barrel-bridge’.

During summer months it stands next to the Andreas-church.

Walk into the center and then take the first right.

Pass the old wooden pharmacist and look for a ''Band Without Sound''.

Which instrument isn't included in this band?
