After getting settled in at the marina we decided to go into town and check it out.
It’s became clear very fast that Den Helder is a nautical city focused around the naval base. Walking into town we passed a navy submarine placed on land as part of a museum, Next to the Navy academy. A upscale poulard as a statue and did we mention the marina we are in is inside the Navy base. Neatness to say proud nautical city of roughly 55 000 inhabitants.
With the amazing weather we decided to have a picnic in a park just west of city center. Sunbathing in over 20deg Celsius… a taste of what to come, hopefully 😎
