When visiting Volendam, the passage to the peninsula Marken is a must! Walking around in Marken is a real Dutch experience. Volendam Marken Express; it does not get any better than this!

The slogan of Volendam Marken Express is ‘no sea is too high for us’. This is proved by the fact that their boats have been connecting Volendam to Marken for over 80 years. The name Volendam Marken Express originates from a tram that run from Amsterdam Noord to Monnickendam, Edam and Volendam. The route was extended in 1905 and included a crossing with the steamboat. The tram service was in operation until 1956.

Volendam Marken Express gives you the opportunity to visit two special places in one day. You will be surprised how different Volendam and Marken actually are. During the 30-minute crossing, extensive information is provided and you can enjoy the impressive views across the Gouwzee and the IJsselmeer.

As a guest on the ships of the Volendam Marken Express, you will experience the island feeling from the moment you get on board. During the passage, enjoy the snacks and drinks in The Captains Bar, listen to stories of the crew or the audio tour (also available in English) and learn more about these authentic harbor villages. Whether you sit on on the lower or upper deck of the boat, you will feel completely free when sailing on the waters of the Markermeer.

We also have another experience called Windmill Cruises Zaanse Schans!
