It is famous because of the Hindeloopen art and hindeloopen culture. Hindeloopen is one of the eleven cities of Friesland.Hindeloopen received city rights in 1225 and in 1368 it became a member of the Hanseatic League. Since the 12th and 13th century, shippers of Hindeloopen undertook journeys to the North and Baltic Sea Coasts. The strong overseas connections with foreign countries and infrequent contact with the hinterland were probably the reasons for the developing of the Hindeloopen language; a mixture of West Frisian, English, Danish, and Norwegian. The 17th and 18th century were especially golden times. The rich town developed in those days her own costume and a completely individual style with colorful painted walls and furniture. In the small streets some sea captains houses remind of this time of glory. In summertime when the captain was at sea, the captain's wife lived with the children in the so-called "Likhus". A little house behind the captain's house at the waterline. H38 cm x W15 cm x D29 cm. It will be a great addition to any collection.
