Icon description route Description

This region is known among other things for the cheese and authentic traditional clothing. Driving from Edam to Volendam, you pass along the waterfront. At the end of the bike ride which is about 30 km long, you ride from Volendam to Edam along a busier road through the center of the "new" Volendam.

In the old district near the Gauwzee, it is very touristy. There, you can find several photographers where you can have your picture taken in the authentic Volendam traditional clothing.
From this dike, you take a ferry to Marken. The price was in 2023 €14 per adult with a bike for the one-way trip (you do not need to buy a return ticket because you ride back via the dike).

Marken is a very beautiful small peninsula with wooden stake houses. Via the dike (usually very windy), you cycle to Monnickendam. There is a small church where an angel blows the hours instead of a bell ringing them.
From Monnickendam, you cycle about twelve kilometers along the dike to Volendam via Katwoude. Then from Volendam back to Edam.
