Volendam is a nice walkable place which has plenty of restaurants. If you don't prefer a restaurant one can get at the street kiosks which are selling mostly seafood snacks. It's very affordable too. This place is really for the tourist and people who want want to kill time.

Cute place, lots of history. A few of the well known Dutch (folks) singers were born here. It's great to spent half a day here, just walk around and get your picture taken in "original Dutch clothes".

So close to Amsterdam, about 30 minutes by car and you will find a beautiful village that was devastated by the flood in the past and it worked to reconstruct the city. Right now the city is working to provide an Experience and to interact with what happen with the city, how they lived. In the near future visitors will... More

I could have skipped this part of my trip. Streets were crowded and full of nothing but shop after shop hawking souvenirs. Tales of people dressed in traditional Dutch costumes were just that - tales. Was not worth the time for me.

Yes, maybe it's a bit touristy place but soo pretty. It's definitely worth visiting. Enjoy a slow stroll and have a smoked eel or something else down in the harbour. We enjoyed a cup of morning coffee and Dutch cake in an old-fashioned Cafe Centraal and also bought a few souveniers and cheese there. If you arrive in the morning... More

Volendam is a really neat little town. It is a cute fishing village. There are lots of fun restaurants and souvenir shops. You can have your pictures taken in traditional Dutch costumes. Its picturesque and worth the trip!
