Noordwijk has a long history.

Already 2000 years before Chr. people already lived in this place, it is thought that there were about 1200, presumably these were all fishermen.

On April 1, 1398, Count Albrecht van Bieren requested on behalf of the residents to grant Noordwijk city rights, unfortunately this was rejected. That is why Noordwijk had no city walls or gates and therefore remained a village
