Documentary about Medemblik. In an extensive introduction, this documentary refers to the long history of the town of Medemblik, which begins as early as 344 AD. The town was built on the site where, according to legend, the Frisian King Radboud (c. 680 - 719) built a fortress. In a long panoramic shot taken from a church tower, we then see the city, its surroundings, and the banks of the Zuiderzee. We then see the most important buildings, streets, and squares. The intertitles give the standard information. The film ends with shots of the Radboud castle, built by Floris V in the 13th century (on the site where King Radboud’s fortress was said to have been built), and which for three centuries was an impregnable fortress during various regional disputes.
