Show sight on map

The Bonifacius church of Medemblik is a Dutch church from 1404. A predecessor of the church, the oldest mention of which dates from 1118, had gone up in flames shortly before. The church ruins were used in the construction of the new church. The church was originally dedicated to Saint Bonifacius, later also to Saint Martin. In 1572, after the Reformation, the name Bonifacius was used for this Protestant church and Saint Martin became the main patron of the Roman Catholic parish in Medemblik. Despite being hit by two fires, the church was largely preserved. Today the church is in use by the Protestant congregation of Medemblik (PKN). The north aisle was used as a theatre under the name BON theatre. Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck married in this church in 1590.

De Herder is an octagonal, thatched scaffolding mill and is located in Medemblik. It is a top crawler and has two pairs of grindstones. Until 1947 there was an earlier mill on the same spot, which was then demolished because it no longer worked and was no longer needed. During the rebuilding, it was no longer possible to use it. Nevertheless, the mill was built with various old parts: The wooden octagon was built in Wormer in 1695 and had served as an oil mill in Willeskop from 1904. In 1986 this mill hull was brought to Medemblik when people had started to seriously think about rebuilding, the large wooden beams could still be overhauled and used at that time.
