Hoorn, Netherlands
Hoorn is a municipality and a town in the Netherlands, in the province of North Holland. It is located on the IJsselmeer, 35 kilometres north of Amsterdam. In late medieval times, Hoorn became rich through sea trade and fishing, making possible the construction of many of the picturesque buildings that can be seen today. Its maritime past is also reflected in the fact that Cape Horn is named after it.

Hoorn’s compact medieval centre is home to many late medieval buildings.
