Reduced to the role of a river port following the closure of the Zuiderzee, the town of Kampen has preserved some 500 listed monuments from its splendid past that will delight visitors as they explore its historic centre. In the Middle Ages, this Hanseatic town was particularly prosperous thanks to its trade in herring. However, it declined very quickly in the 16C as a result of the wars that ruined its hinterland and the silting up of the Ijssel.
