Andijk About this sound pronunciation (West Frisian: Andìk) is a municipality and a village bordering Lake IJssel in the Netherlands, in the province of North Holland and the region of West-Frisia.

The name Andijk comes from the Dutch "aan de dijk", which translates into English as "on the dike". In 1667, a small church was built. During the French Napoleonic occupation, Andijk became an independent municipality on 1 January 1812 by imperial decree of 21 October 1811 .

Andijk has fertile clay soil with agriculture and vegetable horticulture. Andijk is also an important supplier of drinking water for the region.
