At the turn of the 18th century, this district was an industrial area with approximately 700 working windmills, however, there are only five left today.

You will pass through typical Dutch scenery before arriving in Volendam where you will take a stroll. You will visit the traditional fisherman’s village of Marken, situated on the shores of the former Zuiderzee. Your tour includes a demonstration in a cheese factory.
