Rent an e-bike
At the Volendam Marken Express
Cycle around Volendam and Marken area and discover the beautiful nature by the Gouwzee and less well-known, but equally authentic villages such as Monnickendam and Katwoude. These great places are often skipped when visiting Volendam and Marken and that is a shame! With the fast and comfortable e-bikes you will have enough time to enjoy these surroundings!
With the lightweight ‘Watt’ e-bikes you will explore at your leisure. The bicycles have 5 levels of pedalling support, so you choose how heavy or light you want to pedal – at a speed of up to 30 km per hour! You’re moving around, but just a little faster, which gives you more time to explore nature, villages and terraces.
Admire at your leisure beautiful nature and the nicest villages
Beautiful landscapes and cosy villages in North Holland can be discovered on the e-bikes. One of the most popular routes is to cycle via Volendam to Katwoude, Broek in Waterland and Monnickendam, from where you will cycle over the dyke to Marken. On Marken, you can take the bike on board the Marken Express to return to Volendam! For more routes and tips, see this page of Laag Holland.
Het Paard van Marken’ lighthouse
Marken’s harbour and the iconic green houses are what attract most people to the peninsula. However, what draws photographers to Marken is the lighthouse at the most easterly point in Marken, ‘Het Paard van Marken’. When you see the lighthouse, you know immediately why it is so popular. If you are on Marken, you do not want to miss it. In about 20 minutes cycle along meadows and the Gouwzee to the lighthouse.
