Broek in Waterland : Michelin's recommendations
Located near a stretch of water (the Havenrak), this flower-filled village with freshly painted houses was once renowned for its cleanliness. It is said that you had to take off your boots before entering and this even applied to Napoleon (1811). But do not panic - today you can keep your shoes on.
