When in Oudemirdum, don’t forget to visit the Oudemirdumerklif, which can be reached via the Minne Minnespaad, starting at De Dollen. This pathway was named after the last “fiskerman” (fisherman) of Oudemirdum. Day in, day out, Minne Minnes would walk from his cottage at one end of the path, carrying the nets on his shoulders, to his boat. Minne had his own private inlet of the Zuiderzee. In 1939, he stopped fishing because there was no longer eel to be caught. Slightly further along was the inlet ‘belonging to’ his brother, Inne Minnes.
