Volendam is a cozy old fishers village, founded in the 15th century. Some people say it’s the gem of the Zuiderzee (Southern Sea). Popular destination for tourists, it has its special charme and it’s known in the whole world for its unique traditional costumes. The town harbor looks very homy from the water and it does prove so indeed. Straight on the quay one will find many lively cafés and restaurants.
