Fodor's Review

One of the most striking sights in Enkhuizen is the 70-foot wooden clock tower beside the 16th-century redbrick Westerkerk (also called the Sint Gommaruskerk). The pale yellow square tower sits on a brick base and tapers toward the top, and is like no other construction in Benelux. Originally constructed in 1519, it was extended in 1609. The inner wooden frame is original, but the outer cladding was replaced in 1877.
