How to Reach Volendam


  • By Air: The nearest airport is the Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.
  • By Bus: Buses go to central Volendam from Amsterdam, Zaanse Schans, Edam and Purmerend.
  • By Boat: During the summer, one of the most popular activities in town is taking the Ferry to Marken from the city Marina.
  • By Car: Amsterdam is about 30 minutes away by car. Parking for free at Roompot Marina Park.


  • By Foot: Most of the town's major attractions are near the marina, only a few minutes walk from each other.
  • By Car: While it's possible to take your own car around, parking is just an inconvenience.
