Cycling route 771952
Provided by: Groots Genieten
Marken is a former island with a well-preserved cultural history. On the other side of the Gouwzee you cycle through the Dutch lowlands with its wide grasslands and straight ditches.
Before you cross by boat to another characteristic town: Volendam. From the beautiful old harbor you can drive straight into the polders. Here you drive along vast meadows where cows graze: a beautiful Dutch picture. Further on you drive along the Purmer Ee, an old connection of the Purmerpolder with the former Zuiderzee. Further on is't Twiske, a beautiful unspoilt and wetland nature reserve.
't Schouw is a former seventeenth-century transfer point in the barge traffic between Amsterdam and Hoorn. So it's a historic place. This also applies to Broek in Waterland and Zuiderwoude: two old villages where you can see many monumental buildings. You cycle back to Marken via the dike. The entire former island has been so well preserved that it has a protected cityscape. Feel free to get off the bike to enjoy the beautiful wooden houses and the atmosphere by bike.
