Urk is a nice little authentic fishing village on the former Zuiderzee, Now IJsselmeer. Many people are still walking in traditional costume. A similar village is Volendam. This is a bit more touristy and a bit further away from Harderwijk. Urk is 45 minute drive from Harderwijk. It is very worthwhile to watch it. Urk combines well with Schokland.
