A Dutch day out: with a Dutch sailing ship to Volendam!
Volendam. With its many souvenir shops, restaurants and cafes. Where hundreds of tourists daily enjoy the authentic atmosphere and the view of the harbor and the waterfront. The Maze where you find yourself suddenly in quiet streets and you’ll think you’re back a hundred years in time. And the boats coming in and out the harbor to sail to Marken across the lake.
Volendam … a village that was visited in 1880 by famous painters and painted a thousand times. It’s a village that was celebrated as the jewel of the Zuiderzee.
