Amsterdam City Tours, Marken

4.5
#1 of 9 in Things to do in Marken
Separated by a storm from the mainland in medieval times, Amsterdam City Tours stands as a traditional Dutch fishing village frozen in time. Though today reconnected with a dike, the small island (now peninsular) town retains much of its tradition and culture. Wander along the waterfront and down quiet streets surrounded by wooden houses, and you'll feel as though you've stepped back several centuries. Keep an eye out for the "Horse of Marken," a lighthouse on the peninsula with a 16 m (54 ft) tower dedicated to guiding sailors and fishermen to safety. Stop by the local museum to learn more about age-old Dutch traditions, the history of the town, and the traditional clothing worn in the past by the population. Don't miss the wooden shoe workshop in the village, which produces a classic symbol of Holland. Make Amsterdam City Tours a centerpiece of your Marken vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Marken trip planner.
