't Walvisvaarders Huisje from the 18th century is located in the southernmost village, Den Hoorn. Real whalers lived in the house. Back in time We go back to the early 18th century. Klaas Jacobsz Daalder, who has sailed on long sea voyages since he was 10 years old, bought this house in 1729 and lived here with his wife and children. For sixty years this house would be inhabited by whalers. The special national monument is still inhabited and is furnished exactly as it was in the 18th century. You will see box beds, utensils and 18th century Harlinger tiles. There is a lot of information to be found about whaling. The cottage has a Zaans blue front room, an apple blossom pink back room and you can view the special fireplace in the kitchen. Tour Do you want to know how the whalers lived in the 18th century?
