A 4-hour self-guided countryside bike tour is the perfect way to explore Dutch culture and rolling landscapes. Depart from the old harbor in Volendam and ride towards Monnickendam: stop at the Kathammer windmill to soak up a classic Dutch sight. En-route, you'll visit a traditional cheese farm, view a cheese-making demonstration, and sample different kinds of cheeses.
At the old center of Monnickendam, you'll feel like you've stepped into a time capsule. Admire light bronze bricked-houses, the old harbor, the beer brewery, and charming terraces. Find out how local beer is brewed, sample some homemade sausages, and relax on the breezy terraces.
Continue onto the former island of Marken, where characteristic houses and the stunning view over the Gouwzee will catch your view. Stop at the Viskraam (fish stall) to try some traditional haring or Kibbeling. Pass by a wooden shoe factory, go inside, and get a demonstration on how wooden shoes are made.
Finally, at the harbor of Marken, take a boat back to Volendam. As you cruise along the sparkling coastline, learn about the fascinating history and culture of the area with your handy audio guide (English or Dutch). The Volendam-Marken Express departs every 30 minutes from Marken, ensuring you don't have to worry about accessibility. After you're back in Volendam, ride your bikes to the rental company, where your tour officially ends.
