Urk : Michelin's recommendations
This old island was rejoined to the land by the creation of the north-east polder but it remains a distinct community. Moreover, its insular character and its traditions (Calvinism, traditional costumes) have been preserved. Today it is a small port and is very busy with tourists, yet it has preserved its picturesque appearance. Once specialising in eel fishing, Urk today has the largest fish market in the country.
