We hebben allemaal genoten, een heerlijke dag in Volendam TOP

Arjen ter Maat 19-05-2024

De begeleiding vanuit Linsey was leuk. Tussen het spel door gaf ze wat tips, wat handig was om met weer wat verder te komen. Wij vonden het een leuke activiteit (vriendengroep, 8 personen)

The municipality of Edam-Volendam

The municipality of Edam-Volendam is located in the northeast of the Waterland region of North Holland, on the Markermeer.  About 37,000 people live in the municipality of Edam-Volendam, of whom about 22,500 live in Volendam.  About 7,500 people live in Edam.  The municipality has an area of 8098 hectares and has grown from a small fishermen's village to a place that many a tourist like to visit.  As Amsterdam is only half an hour's drive from Amsterdam, the village is easily accessible.  However, the village is also easily accessible by public transport.  You can park for free at the Marinapark, from where you can reach the harbour of Volendam in less than 10 minutes.  How convenient!

Famous village

Each year, Volendam attracts around two million visitors. And not only from the Netherlands but from all over the world. Part of the reason for its fame is its fishery, music, sports, the famous charming dyke, art, the Doolhof and, of course, the traditional costume of the village. Yet despite its fame, Volendam has remained totally unchanged over the years. Old botters, fishing boats and recreational vessels still meet in Volendam's harbour, and the adjacent famous dike with its many shops and restaurants is also still as it was. No wonder, then, that many tourists from home and abroad think Volendam is worth a visit.

From a staff outing to a weekend or day trip

Among those visitors are tourists from all over the world. They visit Volendam for a weekend or day trip, whether for a staff outing, family outing, bachelor party, anniversary or other occasion. Sometimes as part of a larger trip through the Netherlands, but there are plenty of tourists who visit the Netherlands solely for a visit to Volendam and Amsterdam. A visit to Volendam is always fun, regardless of the occasion. Have a delicious seafood dinner on the Dike, followed by a guided tour of Volendam AND Marken... In the evening, a pub crawl, but not before enjoying a good meal. After activities in the town, you could stay in one of Volendam's hotels if you like. The possibilities are endless. Will you go to Volendam for a day or a weekend?

Typical Volendam activities

What comes to mind when you think of truly Volendam activities? Chances are that eating a fish on the famous dike and a photo in traditional costume will pop into your head. The following activities are typically Volendam and get many good reviews:

  • Taking a photo in a traditional costume
  • Taking a boat trip, such as a tour to Marken
  • Renting a bike for a tour through the municipality of Edam-Volendam

  • Going to a museum, such as the Volendam museum or the Palingsound museum

Tour through Volendam and Marken

Did you know that it is also possible to do a tour that goes not only through Volendam, but through Volendam and Marken?  Many people want to see both villages, as these islands are connected inextricably. No wonder, then, that a Volendam and Marken boat trip is very popular. From the harbour of Volendam, you quickly reach the harbour of Marken, the crossing takes just 30 minutes to be precise.

Once there, you can admire this former peninsula in the Zuiderzee up close. The island of Marken always leaves a mark, with its houses on stilts, the world-famous souvenir shop and the authentic fishing harbour. Marken is perfect for a guided tour through the various neighbourhoods and past the most beautiful dockyards. If you like, you can see how wooden shoes are traditionally made during a visit to the clog factory. How fun is that?
