The “New Year’s Dive” takes place every year on 1 January in Egmond aan Zee. Countless people walk into the cold water to begin the new year.
The next special event takes place on the second Sunday in January: In the Egmond Half Marathon, with more than 10,000 runners, the route partly runs along the North Sea beach and through the dunes.
North Holland still has 48 communities after an area reform in 2016 – including Amsterdam, Alkmaar, Zandvoort, Purmerend, Zaanstad, Enkhuizen, Hoorn, Haarlem and Haarlemmermeer.
