Nederland - Harlingen, Noorderhaven

Nederland - Harlingen, Noorderhaven
In 1565 the city council of Harlingen received permission from Philips II to expand the city on the north side. This mainly concerned the widening of the northern canal to Noorderhaven (Northern Harbour) and the planned neighbourhood to the north of it. These activities were completed in the years 1579-1580 and Harlingen had approximately tripled in size.

This tidal port accommodated many vessels that came from the Frisian hinterland and was connected to the sea. The port became a popular place to live for wealthy citizens and still has many monumental houses today. Warehouses were also built along the water. Some names of the warehouses recall the destinations of the merchants, such as Poland, Russia, Java, and Sumatra. In 1730, town architect H.J. Norel started with the construction of the new town hall, which is also located along the Noorderhaven .

That's a lovely scene Jaap with most uncommon blue skies. Holland is one of the few places that seems to share our wet weather. Harlingen looks a place well worth visiting. Thanks for sharing.

This water colour reminds me of Amsterdam...
Many years ago I went there for the first time, in a MINI, coming from Basel, just to see a remarkable Exibition of Rembrandt with his works from all over the world, between 68 and the seventies I can not remember now
I was very much affraid of those bycicles with so many knees passing outside the window during my way in town for it was rush hour to go to work.
Never ever could I forget it, the civilised way they drove past...

No wonder you saw 'some' bycicles as we have 23 millions of them in the Netherlands.
