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.

Arnold van der Zee photo studio

On the Zuideinde in Monnickendam take a trip back in time to when the monks in their brown cowls and the nuns in their black and white habits were here.

You can go back in time too! Because in this historical setting of a real cloister you can have your photo taken completely in style as a monk or nun. On your own, together, with colleagues, friends or family. The starting price for a photo is €15,-. You can take your photo or your file with you straight away. A unique experience that can only be had in Monnickendam. This is the place where – dressed as a monk or nun – you can feel as they must have felt in the thirteenth century. An extraordinary historical event on the Zuideinde, that you can be part of. A not-to-be-missed cloister experience! And one that you can put in your own history book.
