Marken is definitely worth the short trip on the ferry. The views are amazing and the town is so quaint. Take a stroll and enjoy the town. Stop in at one of its wonderful restaurants or grab a souvenir.

Visit there if you have plenty of time in Netherlands. Otherwise nothing much to see and do there. Though we enjoyed the ferry from Marken to Volendam.

Beautiful ,picturesque fishermen village. Took a bus from Amsterdam Central station and continued the trip to Volendam. It is best to take Amsterdam region travel card, which gives you opportunity to visit many places around Amsterdam.

This is very charming village and not so busy as e.g. Volendam. Cute harbor and interesting, pretty houses all around. Nice for a walk and perhaps some lunch/dinner in one of the harbor side restaurants. There is also a wooden shoe fabric.

There isn't much to do here, but the village itself is worth seeing - so very pretty and quaint. I also saw how wooden shoes are made, which was quite interesting.

We arrived on the ferry from Volendam. Very pretty small harbour where apparently the houses were built on stilts (although you can't see them now). I don't believe much fishing goes on these days - tourism is the main form of income for the village....More

It's tourist prices everywhere. There is a big shop halfway the two. But it's not different. Since it's a tourist thing at large you pay tourist prices. Still very reasonable for what you are getting but do try them on and... More
