Volendam, Marken and Edam

Up to a point, the travel guides are right: these former fishing towns 20km north of Amsterdam are touristy.  But they are also charming places to visit; each with a distinct character, and a full range of sticky pastries.  We travelled to Marken by ferry from Volandam, but it can also be reached by a causeway road built in the 1960s.

Marken




Edam (yes, as in cheese)
