In the 50s and 60s, schoolchildren were sent to the Egmond municipality in poor health to recover and to strengthen them in various "colony houses". The municipality of Egmond comprises, next to the old fishing village Egmond aan Zee, with its quiet and typically Dutch houses, the villages Egmond Binnen and Egmond aan den Hoef.
In Egmond Binnen you will find the Abbey of Egmond known far across the border. This original abbey from the 10th century became the starting point for the Christianisation of Europe. In the new monastery built in 1934, Benedictine monks still live and work today. The Abbey museum provides an insight into the history and the pottery and candle making. In Egmond Binnen you will also find a picturesque church. The Count of Egmond once resided in the village of Egmond aan den Hoef. Unfortunately, there is only a ruin left of his great Water Lock, but this ruin and the chapel are also worth a visit.
