Volendam & Marken
Volendam and Marken were originally harbours at the Zuiderzee (southern sea). When the Dutch constructed the Afsluitdijk (enclosing dike) in 1932 the Zuiderzee became a lake that we now call the IJsselmeer. Volendam and Marken are both former fisherman's town but are now more famous for their original Dutch clothing, their cheese- and wooden shoe factory which we will of course visit during the tour.
Around lake the Zaan you will see many original windmills and of course lots of water. These mills were used for all kinds of purposes. We will walk through this area and visit an authentic windmill.
