Marken is a small island community in the IJsselmeer. It is easy to get there from Amsterdam (via Volendam) and is a nice daytrip if you want to see a traditional Dutch fishing village. If you visit Marken as a daytrip from Amsterdam you will feel you are in a different world and century.

Marken is most interesting for its green painted houses on the Dyke, its traditional religious isolationisme, its strong football team and its expensive tourist shops.

Get a sailing trip at the IJsselmeer ( www.mk28.nl) , from Marken is definately worth a stop.
