Location Information:

 

The North Sea Canal connects the North Sea with the IJ Bay in Amsterdam.

Besides the Velsen Municipality Hall (Raadhuis van de gemeente Velsen), designed by the famous architect Willem Dudok, important sights in IJmuiden are the North Sea locks. The latter are among the largest in the world and one set is able to close off a shipping lane 50 metres (164 ft) wide and 12 meters (39 ft) deep. There are plans to enlarge or build a new set to facilitate passage for even larger vessels.

DFDS Seaways serve a route between Amsterdam and Newcastle via IJmuiden. A new roll-on/roll-off ferry route between IJmuiden and Great Yarmouth in the United Kingdom was due to being in 2009.[1], though as of January 2010, Great Yarmouth ferry terminal is still under construction.
