The Gelaghkamer and The Inn Garden - Jan Steen

Pubs and Inns

This animation https://youtu.be/R7wcs3iNnzA gives a wonderful insight into life in the pubs and inns in the Golden Age. After all, it was during this time that the barge trade developed and flourished.

As a passenger on the Boterdiep trekking route, you will pass villages where there were bars and inns.

Would similar scenes as in the major cities in the Netherlands have also taken place in the bars and inns of Warffum, Fraamklap, Middelstum, Kantens, Doodstil and Uithuizen?

Let your imagination run wild.
