Day trip to Marken and Volendam from Amsterdam
We present the most complete experience of your trip to Amsterdam. A day trip around the countryside north of the city where you will discover the most authentic and rural Holland. The excursion will take us to the banks of the river Zaan, where we will visit the villages of the Zaanse-Schans, characterised by traditional wooden houses and windmills. At the beginning of the 18th century, this district was an industrial area with approximately 700 windmills in operation, however, only five remain today. We will also visit the village of Marken, situated on the banks of the old Zuiderzee, Volendam and much more.
