The historic fishing village Volendam is certainly worth a visit. Here you can stroll along the dyke, have a taste of some delicious fresh fish and take a picture in traditional costume.


And when you are at Volendam, you can also take the boat to Marken. The boat takes you along the Gouwzee to the peninsula Marken, where the houses are still made from wood.


It is like you have gone back in time, except in September when Volendam goes crazy at the fairground (not in 2020, will return in September 2021).

Ask your hotel reception for more information, like rates and the must sees. You can also book a tour for either half a day or a day.
