Hidde Kat Story Trail - Tourist Information

Hidde Kat Story Trail

Would you like to experience an unusual, interesting, and funny walk, join the Hidde Kat Story Trail. The walk takes about 90 minutes through Hollum, past well-known and lesser-known sites that are associated with whaling commander Hidde Dirks Kat. Without glorifying the whaling tradition, but showing a powerful insight into this remarkable trade of a few centuries ago.

The Story Trail kicks off at 14:00 at the statue of Kat on the H.D. Katstraat. Including several stops filled with stories, facts, and anecdotes the trail meanders through the village, ending at De Zwaan. Without a doubt, Kat will have had a drink or two here, since tavern De Zwaan was already present at that time in history.
