Sailing with the Volendam Marken Express

When you visit Volendam or Marken, being on a boat is a must! An extremely pleasant boat trip with the Volendam-Marken Express gives you the opportunity to visit two special places in one day. You will be amazed at how different Volendam and Marken are. Not only the houses are completely different, but also the people and even their religion: Volendam is traditionally Catholic and Marken Protestant.

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

Choose for a single trip or a return ticket. The boat sails in half an hour from village to village, click here for the departure times.

Have your picture taken in traditional Volendam costume

The traditional Volendam costume is world-famous, as many painters have depicted the former Volendammers in full costume on canvas. And you too can experience what it is like to wear this beautiful traditional costume. Ever since 1913, you can have your picture taken at the Volendam Photographer in full Volendam costume. With this photo you will have a great memory of your visit to this unique fishing village.

Visit Woltje’s Backerij

The story of Woltje’s Backerij starts on 11 October 1799.  Woltje became acquainted with the Dutch stroopwafel in Gouda and decided to take the recipe with her to Volendam. In her bakery, the Volendam Waffle was born, which is truly different from other syrup waffles. If you are in Volendam, you must of course taste it for yourself!
With your day out in Volendam and Marken, you will get a special insight into Woltje’s bakery. Learn more about this bakery and the old traditions in the small museum, where you can taste the atmosphere of Woltje’s life. You will take part in a demonstration to see how a treacle waffle is made. And it doesn’t stop at just watching… After the demonstration you can enjoy the waffles during a delicious tasting session!
