Welcome in photogenic Volendam
Volendam is renowned for its residents: Dutchmen who live differently from the average Dutchmen.
Volendam has a tight community of hard workers. It has a rich history and hospitality is highly valued. We like to welcome you in the world famous, most delightful village of the Netherlands.
A Volendam resident once said: “There are 16 million Dutchmen and 22,000 Volendam residents.” A watertight reasoning.
