Hoorn's historic centre is rich in old buildings carrying decorative
wall panels and carving, many of which are based on religious stories
and texts. Chris Schrickx, born and bred in Hoorn has inventoried
these and has compiled a walk along these remarkable bas-reliefs and
statues. This route takes you through much of Hoorn's historic old
centre and harbour area.
Whereas the other town walks organised by the Vereniging Oud Hoorn are guided tours,this is one you can do in your own time with the help of the text and route map.
Time: approx. 90 min
Starting point: Vereniging Oud Hoorn club building "Oost-Indisch Pakhuis
