Hindeloopen is in the province of Friesland in the north of the Netherlands. It was a Hanse Town and traded with Norway, The baltic countries and Russia. It flourished in the 17th and 18th century, when rich merchants built stepped gabled houses and large captain's houses.

Hindeloopen is renowned for its hand-painted interiors, tables, furniture, wooden shoes and lots more. The basic colours are red, blue, white and green.

Today Hindeloopen is known for its marina, its narrow canals and wooden bridges. The IJsselmeer dyke is an example of a typically Dutch landscape.
