Discover ‘Old Harbors’ Volendam and Marken with our complete summer day in Volendam package. In one summer day you will see all the highlights of the old Dutch villages. Step aboard the Volendam Marken Express and experience a unique cruise on the Gouwzee. On the upper deck of our ships you have a panoramic view over the Gouwzee and the ports of Volendam and Marken. On the Marken peninsula (30 minutes sailing) time seems to have stopped. Take a look at the sights in Marken, for example Kijkhuisje Sijtje Boes or walk to ‘Het Paard van Marken’, situated at the most eastern point of the peninsula. When you’ve walked around, it’s time for lunch at restaurant Taverne de Visscher. This is the oldest Taverne in Marken where you will experience the real island feeling. On the terrace you look out over the IJsselmeer. When you go to Volendam this summer, an original photo in Volendam costume should not be missing. Once back in Volendam a freshly baked waffle is waiting for you at Woltjes Backerij. A visit to the Marker Museum of Volendam gives the summer day in Volendam and Marken an educational touch!
