The Noortukkers

Back in the days the people of Noordwijk, “the Noortukkers”, lived mainly from fishing.

Since the end of the 19th century, more and more visitors came to the coast for the healthy sea and clean air.

This was the beginning of beach tourism.

When someone wanted to go for a swim, they were taken to the sea by a special ‘bathing carriages’, pulled by horses.

In that time it was not so civilized to walk on the beach in swimwear, so this way they could bathe safely and sheltered.

Look for a painted plaque from 1908 with 2 horses.

Stop here and look around you.

Spot the Tulip.

What color is the Tulip?
