From Volendam we took a ferry across to Marken. It is a smaller fishing village compared to Volendam. Marken was formerly an island but now linked by dyke to the mainland. You can also visit Marken by bus from Amsterdam. We bought our online ferry ticket from Marken Express for €7.50 one way. The journey takes about 30 minutes. We will be taking the bus back to Amsterdam from here. Marken is an ideal photo spot for small habour scene.
