Returning from Marken by bus no. 311, we stop at Broek in Waterland. As the name implies, this small village is surrounded by canals and is picturesque. It has several nice photo spots packed in a small area but please be aware that this is a residential community. Judging from the resident’s cars coming in and going out from here, this is an up scale village. An Amsterdam secret 8 kms away.
Once you get off the bus just walk in and explore the village. After 50 m, you should see a lake to your left and start from there. To return to Amsterdam, go back to the bus stop, take any bus that display ‘CS’ …. i.e. Central Station.
