The Town Hall, Edam

[title-raw]

Built in 1737 the town hall is on a somewhat larger scale than the rest of Edam. The entrance with its heavy double doors and sandstone surrounds are in the Louis XIV Style and a wooden tower completes the picture. The town hall is still in active use for marriage ceremonies. If you walk inside, on the left, you will find what was once the Magistrates court which is now used for Marriages, its open to the Public. If you look above the doorway, you will see the Edam Coat of Arms.

The attractive little town is clustered around canals crossed by drawbridges and surrounded by canal houses and gardens. It’s dominated by St. Nicholas Church, the old Town Hall (1737), the quaint Sea Captain's House (18th century).
