Edam cheese is famous the world over for its red hued rind and signature round shape.
Many people won’t realize however that Edam is actually not just the name of the cheese but also the place it comes from which is the pretty town of Edam.
The town is located on the water and dates back to the 12th century and has an array of cheese related sites to enjoy.
Don’t be surprised if Edam cheese looks a little different here, as it is actually sold with a yellow rind rather than a red one.
Some of the signature attractions for cheese lovers here include a large cheese market and a famous cheese-weighing hall.
