The Marken Express: Providing 80 Years of Ferry Service between Volendam and Marken
For eighty years the Volendam-Marken Express has been faithfully providing a ferry service between the picturesque tourist attraction Volendam and the authentic fishers' island of Marken. Throughout the year, weather permitting, our vessels transport approximately 250,000 tourists, day trippers and local residents.
On the one hand you have bustling Volendam, with its bars on the Dijk , the cute little houses of the Doolhof and the famous harbour. On the other hand you have the peace and quiet of the peninsula Marken, an authentic Dutch fishing village where it seems as if time has stood still.
During the high season we will take you across daily between 10.30 a.m. and 6.15 p.m., along with your baggage, bicycle, wheelchair, dog or extensive group. The Volendam-Marken Express has given more than eighty years of service on the water!
