9GHoles

9GHoles offers foot golf, a cross between midget golf and football. The idea is to shoot a football in the ‘hole’ with as few shots as possible.

The holes are spread over 9 courses across a meadow. The foot golf courses contain as many natural obstacles as possible, such as hay bales, sand piles, wood but also car tyres, that determine the difficulty of the course.
Besides a 9-hole ‘foot golf course’, 9Gholes has a (foot) volley pitch and a small football pitch with miniature goals where football matches can be played. Of course there’s a cosy chalet with a terrace (free Wi-Fi) where you can have something to eat and drink. So you don’t have to play a game, you can simply enjoy the view of the countryside from our terrace!
To sum up: 9Gholes, in the rural surroundings of Amsterdam, in the middle of the meadows and numerous ditches so typical of Waterland, is a unique experience.

Marken Express

Cycling in North Holland and Waterland: a wonderful experience. Be sure to cross over (one way) on the Volendam Marken Express! This way you get to see Volendam, the Gouwzee and Waterland from the water and do not have to cycle the same route twice.

Bikes can be brought aboard unrestricted. Of course you can book a return with the Volendam Marken Express, but we would advise you to visit the Paard van Marken, the wonderful lighthouse. And then to cycle or walk over the Zeedijk in the direction of Uitdam, Durgerdam or Monnickendam. On one side of the dyke you can see hundreds of birds bobbing in the Gouwzee basin, while at the same time cows and sheep graze in the meadows. This is the Nethelands at its most beautiful. And the Volendam Marken Express is happy to take you (and your bike) there.
