In the online camera, you can see Markermeer Lake and its surroundings in the city of Horn. Locals believe that Hoorn, where the live stream comes from, is one of the most beautiful cities in North Holland (Noord-Holland). There are many churches, museums, interesting buildings and other attractions on its territory.

Horn, whose lake is shown by the webcam, is located in the West-Friesland region in the province of North Holland.

The city has a large number of canals, and from the south the city is washed by the waters of the Markermeer Lake, which you see in the online camera.

Perhaps the most unusual attraction of Horn is the “bricks” (gevelsteen): any object embedded in the facade of a building that has a decorative function (reminiscent of a bas-relief). In general, in Horn, where the webcam is located, there are about 200 bricks protected by the state.

The main square of Horn, where the live stream takes place, is Roode Steen (Red Stone), located in the south of the city, near the coast. In the center of the square stands a monument to Governor Jan Pieterszoon Coen. It is surrounded by the Westfries Museum and the De Waag of 1609.

From this square, the 5 oldest Horn streets diverge: Grote Oost (East street), West (West), Proostensteeg, Grote Noord, Kerkstraat.

The most important museum in the city, whose lake is shown by an online live camera, is the Westfries Museum, opened in 1880. Its collection, which tells about the cultural history of West Friesland from the 16th to 19th centuries, is housed in 17 rooms. The museum also contains many paintings, silverware, porcelain, firearms.

One of the oldest buildings in Horn in this webcam is the Main Tower (Hoofdtoren) built in 1532, which is located in the city port.

Of the religious buildings in Horn with live broadcast, the Grote Kerk Tower is of great historical significance, the only thing that remains of the destroyed church. The tower is now a city property.

Other interesting churches in Horn

The North Church (Vrouwkerk) is the oldest temple in the city, the construction of which began in 1441 and ended in 1519. Inside there is an organ of 1720, a pulpit, a font, copper analogies of the 17-18 centuries.

Eastern Church (Oosterkerk) or St. Anthony (Sint-Antoniuskerk). Despite the fact that the church was built in 1450, the structure of 1616 has survived to this day.

Lutheran Church (Lutherse Kerk) of 1768. Now the temple is closed and you can only see the facade.
