The Marken Express is a ferry service connecting the former island of Marken with the famous town of Volendam. Ideal for a day outing, the idyllic fisherman's village of Marken with a population of just 2,000 features its own unique wooden-house architecture which draws tourists to its shores every year. The Marken Express operates from March to November with regular crossings every 30-45 minutes. The journey itself takes just under half an hour and travellers can buy beers, sodas and snacks on board the ferry from the bar service. In fine weather, don't miss the opportunity to enjoy this short cruise from the open deck with a view of the ice-blue waters of the Zuiderzee.
