Sailing with the Marken Express

During the 30-minute crossing, you will get lots of information about the differences and the fishing villages themselves. Meanwhile, you can enjoy the impressive views over the Gouwzee, the IJsselmeer, the old fishing boats and authentic harbours.

Have your picture taken in traditional Volendam costume

The traditional Volendam costume is world-famous; you too can experience what it is like to wear this beautiful costume. At Fotograaf Volendam, you can have your photo taken in traditional costume since 1913. With this photo, you will have a great memory of your visit to this unique fishing village.

See how wooden shoes are made

On Marken, visit the world's only steam-powered clog factory. Clogs are still made here according to a more than 100-year-old tradition. At the Klompenmakerij, you will see how a local clog maker simply transforms a block of wood into a wooden shoe within minutes. To make the wooden shoes, old machines dating from 1906 and powered by an antique steam engine from 1913 are used. Of course, you can try on clogs in your own size with us and buy your own stunning pair!
