Volendam was once the port of Edam. It is located along the Ijsselmeer River, which was abandoned after the construction of a new port near the hotel. These lands were then occupied by farmers and fishermen who eventually form the community of Volendam. Their wooden houses follow the tradition of the people from North Holland, and the later constructed streets have narrow channels along them. You can notice in the external decorations of houses some manicured Swedish family names. But Volendam is a tourist town with about 200,000 inhabitants. The pier with restaurants and bars suit all tastes. There are also many shops where you can find local crafts, lace and cheese which tastes a bit like Edam.

Volendam is such a picturesque town

Great

Go down the port and enjoy a nice walk through the sea side, you should also they variety of sea food they have, the smell is quite irresistible.

Since you are visiting Volendam, you should take advantage to visit other near cities as well. There is a bus called “GO DUTCH”, it has 7 stops, which are Amsterdam-Volendam-Marken-Edam-Monnickendam-Purmerend-Broek in waterland. The cost in 10€ for unlimited rides for one day.
