The beauty and glory of enchanting Marken

One of my favorite day-trip destinations is the aptly named Waterland, being home to three picturesque villages: Edam, Marken, and Volendam, all situated on the coast of the Markermeer.

I’ve visited all three of them, but I decided to start with Marken: a lovely little hamlet lying on a tiny peninsula, my favourite out of these three locations.

The narrow alleys, the old wooden dwellings, the labyrinth of passageways and the occasional glimpse of “real” (not tourist-focused) life. I’d like to recommend you to begin your trip in the early morning, so you can fully catch the town in its biggest beauty and glory.
