As I have been a Dutch resident for more than 25 years now, I thought it was time to visit Volendam, known for its authenticity. I loved the small/ medium sized original houses (not only at 'the boulevard street'!!) and the location (with the small harbor). Of course, you have to get some fresh fish when visiting Volendam, however the... More

Very touristic and busy, but pretty small city. You can park at one of free city parking areas up to 1.5 hour, but you have to put at the window blue clock showing when you have started (you have to purchase it and it is good for more cities). Advised to combine with a visit in Marken, small village near... More

My friends and I took came here for half of our countryside day trip and there were no regrets from no one. Once we reached the sea-level pathway, our breath was taken away. Walking this path, while touristy, is a must. My friends all had different types of fish and they were amazing at the taste. As a vegetarian, no... More

More lively than Marken this place was quite busy but it is interesting to walk around and look at the houses and waterways. Lots of places to shop for touristy things and to have a meal. Well worth the trip out of Amsterdam

After 4 day spent all around Amsterdam I decided to spent one day visiting the countryside. From the central station in Amsterdam is possible to buy one day tickets (10 euros pp) with a map and you can take a lot of buses to go to visit different town. I decided for Volendam about 30 minuts from Amsterdam central station.... More

We arrived here really early and it was quiet. We had a lovely look around the touristy type shops before walking along the seafront. We then took a walk off the beaten track and found some very quaint houses and lovely clothes shops, together with a nice little shopping centre. It was getting very busy by the time we left,...
