"Old wooden houses in Broek"

"The most striking sight in Broek in Waterland are the old wooden houses.
They are painted in grey.
The pretty houses preserve their original details, such as ceremonial doors (used only for marriages and funerals), carved and colourful lintels (a way of identifying a house before the invention of house numbers) and stone tiles on the chimney (to prevent witches from flying in, true story)"
