About this activity

  • 2 picturesque Dutch fishing villages
  • Including two way ticket for Marken Express boat

  • Entrance to a typical Dutch house in Marken

Pay a visit to the picturesque fishing villages of Volendam and Marken and experience it like a local! Walk, cycle, enjoy lunch and take the boat while you plan your own day at your own pace.

Start your day in the old fishing village of Volendam, which is well known throughout Holland for its lively harbour, green wooden houses, eel fishing and traditional costumes. See all these unique things for yourself on your visit to the village! Another must see is Woltjes bakery for a traditional Dutch stroopwafel cookie!

Whenever you're ready, you resume your tour and set course to the second village of the day: Marken. This used to be an island, but has been connected to the main land by a road since 1957. Hop aboard of the Marken Express, sail over the Marker lake and enjoy the view over the water from harbour to harbour!

Once you set foot on the peninsula, you can follow the signs to the “Sijtje Boes”, an authentic house you can visit to discover how the people of Marken lived around 1940. When you walk among the houses on Marken, be careful to stay on the road because before you know it you're in someone's garden.


Enjoy a delicious take away lunch in either Volendam or Marken, or take it with you to eat on the boat. Both come with a small bottle of wine. Good to know: lunch is for two people minimum.
