Within Egmond

Pretty lively village

Egmond- Inside is a beautiful village in a vast landscape that has ever been given shape by monks. It has a lively main street with shops and there are some hangouts, touristy but it is not.

The magnificent dunes with bike- change- and horse trails are nearby, beyond which lies a wide and quiet beach. In the spring, the colored bulb photogenic. The special atmosphere attracts around the Benedictine monastery - as in past times - people from far and wide. The visitor of the Egmond Abbey is therefore recommended. Parking is always free at Egmond-Inside.

Rinnegom

Rinnegom was formerly Rinighem, which may mean a place on the Rhine. It is a hamlet between Egmond-Inside and Heiloo and previously belonged to the abbey. The serfs who lived there, were not free to go where they wanted. Where now stands a youth hostel, what dead 1967 Rinne Goms the church, who was meant for all Egmonders who went to walk there. The R.K. cemetery is still there and the cafe (now a restaurant) that was visited in days after church pressure.

History: It started on a shoreline

Far before our era lived here on a shoreline under difficult circumstances all farmers and fishermen. Traces of them are obliterated by the sea or buried under many feet of drifting sand. In the 7th century, the sea level dropped and there was a settlement on the spot where the Adelbertus Akker. This is the oldest Egmond, that in ancient writings also Eckmunde, Hecmunde or Egmunde hot.

St. Adelbert: the first tourist

According to tradition, landed around the year 690 a group of monks from a monastery on the coast of Ireland. Among them was Adelbert, a companion of Willibrord. The story is that Adelbert his good works performed in the area and then in Egmond came to rest. You could call him the first tourist. St. Adelbert state regularly with big letters in the newspaper because the local football club is so hot. The patron saint of Egmond-Inside also gave its name to the abbey, the R.K. church, a (disappeared) school and a street. Egmond aan Zee also once had a St. Aalbrechtstraatje, but that has disappeared in the sea.

The Adelbertus Akker and the well

The Adelbertus Field located in the dunes at the Old Schulpweg at number 18. It is a mystical place where all 13 centuries pilgrims come. The pastor of Egmond-Inside it says so beautiful: "There's strength in the ground." The monk Adelbert was very popular and in 740 buried on the field. Taste reassure the water from the well and maybe you will experience the healing effect. This source according to tradition was established when the mortal remains of Adelbert two centuries after his death were transferred to the monastery was founded in the neighboring Hallem now Egmond-Inner hot. Marl blocks give the outline of a church that once stood here.

The abbey of Egmond

In the tenth century, Count Dirk II of Holland founded a monastery that became a powerful medieval abbey: a great center of prayer, art and culture. Monks wrote books here. In 1573 The abbey was destroyed by the Beggars of Sonoy to prevent the Spanish enemy would settle in the Abbey.

So too were the Lock on the Horseshoe and other churches and large farms in flames. Even centuries were the ruins in the landscape and did the towers still as a beacon for shipping.

In 1935 the abbey has been rebuilt and is home anno 2010 yet 13 monks who fully intend to keep it still for long in Egmond. Your presence at the prayer service in the abbey make them particularly appreciated. You can always inwards, even if they have already begun.
