Warmenhuizen, a village that originally depended on horticulture, does not derive its name from ‘warm’ but from the old Dutch word for “seaweed” (“war”), that was used in the 8th century to make the mounds upon which the village was built. The old Ursula church was built in the 16th century upon the foundations of an even older church dating back to the 12th century. In the modern age Warmenhuizen accommodated a sauerkraut factory and a gas works. One of its most famous scions is the cyclist Steven Rooks, who resided in Warmenhuizen when he won the polka dot jersey for his prowess in the mountains of the Tour de France.
