Edam and Monnickendam are both situated in the flat meadow polder lands in which milk and cheese production are paramount. Let's start with Edam. Above is the cheese weighing hall in Edam. Open to the public for free. Edam is a well-preserved small historic town, formerly industrial in character and situated some 15 km north of Amsterdam. Edam was once big in shipbuilding and still is world famous in cheese making. It has a fine historic center with quaint bridges and walkways. Excellent architecture, both of private homes and of stately public buildings.

Monnickendam is another well-preserved small town situated some 15 km north of Amsterdam. Its wonderful historic center with the fine harbour attrackts visitors. Excellent small-scale architecture, both of private homes and of public buildings. We may walk the streets, discuss its history and look at historic monuments. Perhaps we can board one or two ships when we are lucky. Some are equipped to take tour parties on the IJsselmeer lake.

This walking tour is particularly rich in architecture topics: Private homes. Churches. Private residences. For each town, Drs Kees Kaldenbach has collected a research portfolio with maps, plans, elevations, architectural analysis. Quiet streets with brick architecture. The tower with a famous carillon, and the oldest clockwork in the Netherlands. Edam and Monnickendam are situeted close together and can be reached by car from Amsterdam. My private car seats 3 to 4 adults.

As a high-level international tour guide, I offer pleasant tailor-made private tours for small groups. Having an academic background in Art History and teaching, my presentation is both in-depth and very communicative, thus open to a wide audience. I prefer to guide small and select groups to museum visits and to walks...
