Run by a couple of very welcoming ladies, who can tell you everything there is to see in Monnickendam and surroundings. Set in an old building in the middle of the old town, very much worth a visit!

Lovely little town with a beautiful marina. Nothing very special or of interest, but nice to take a walk around and explore an area that isnt full of tourists.

We were not in Monnikendam long enough for me to really notice a bike rental shop. However, bikes are everywhere! Maybe you could email the tourist center in Monnikendam. Have a fun trip!
