Founded in 1357, Hoorn become a major harbour town. During Holland's 'Golden Century', Hoorn was an important home base for the Dutch East India Company. In 1616, the explorer Willem Corneliszoon Schouten bravedstorms as he rounded the southernmost tip of America. He named it Kaap Hoorn (Cape Horn) in honour of his hometown.
With 3 Marinas the small Village alongside the picturesque Markermeer, the South part of the Ijsselmeer, visited by Dutch Historical Ship, is a really nice place to visit
