Welcome to Tourist Office De Rijp

As you wander through De Rijp with its beautifully restored 17th century houses, you will appreciate why the famous water engineer Jan Adriaanszoon Leeghwater referred to it as "the finest village in Holland". Centuries of history are still evident. The unique town hall with its weighing scales and Jan van der Heyden fire pump. The great Gothic church with its 23 stained glass windows. Picturesque farms and half-wooden townhouses all bear witness to the style and glory of the past steeped in a long tradition of whaling fleets and herring fishing. Local guides are pleased to provide more detailed information.


Make sure and visit the museums In 't Houten Huis and the Jan Boon Museum or the period town halls of Graft (1613) and De Rijp (1630). Certainly worth seeing is the famous tombstone floor of the Dutch Reformed Church in Graft and the Mennonite church in Noordeinde.

The villages are rich in shops, galleries, artists and excellent restaurants. Bi-annually, De Rijp has become a legend in the region with its Dickens-style Midwinter Festival.


The neighbouring Eilandspolder nature reserve is just waiting for your discovery on foot, bicycle or by boat.


On April 26 2014 the Dutch Royal Family celebrated the King's birthday ("Koningsdag") in De Rijp.


Information on Graft-De Rijp and the surrounding area is available in our shop: VVV guide books, museum leaflets, brochures of amusement parks and zoos, walking, cycling and boating maps, lists of accommodation addresses. A limited range of souvenirs and postcards are also on sale.
