In Juli 2011 (Sunday - Wednesday) we made a beautiful saiingl trip on the yacht to the island-museum Marken.

From the old port of Monnickendam, located just 10 minutes from Amsterdam Central Station, you can go on a sailing trip on the IJsselmeer. The tour takes 3 hours - 1 hours to island, 1 hour on Marken and then 1 hour back. You walk around when you get here - looking at the original buildings, culture and lovely yards and houses. On the island you can see Holland is the same as in the old days, and to this day locals jealously keep the traditions and culture of the island. 

The price for 1 pers. is 25 euro. For kids onder to 12 years 12 euro.

Where

Monnickendam is located approximately 15 km North-East of Amsterdam.

Town have convenient bus connections with Amsterdam Central station as well as Hoorn and Purmerend.

You can take a bus to Edam - 110, 114 or 118, stop bij Katwoude, Lagedijk. Then walking on the bike path direction Monnickendam. Turn left at Nieuwendam, sharp left at Lakeland Hotel and Yacht harbor Marina (for the sluice and bridge).
If you can, take a bike. It`s more fun. Holland has many convenient and safe cycling-tracks, so why not use them?
The klipper Voolenmaen has a own location at yacht harbor Marina in Monnickendam, next Lake Land hotel (10 min. from Amsterdam). On the harbor area are enough parking places.
