Volendam

Is the town of Volendam accessible by Bicycle from Zaandam? If yes, how long would be the ride. Also how do one goes to Marken (from Volendam - boat ride?). Any recomendations on that?

Anything can be reached by bike.

Zaandam is about 1.5 to 2 hours net cycling time (one way) without breaks or photo stops.

There are regular paid ferries between Volendam and Marken, you can bring a bike on it. It takes half an hour.

You can use the cycle junction network to find a handy and scenic signposted route, read the info and watch the video (on the right) on www.nederlandfietsland.nl/en/cycling-daytrips

You can use the smartphone app "Fiets!" to create your own junction number route and it will tell you how many kilometers it is.

Have fun!

I meant, Zaandam to Volendam.

Broek in Waterland would be a nice place to include. Have pancakes at the Witte Swaen.

Why, Eirelover? I do that all the time... I like Witte Swaen and their pancakes :-) And it's on the way between Zaandam and Volendam (seems nicer than going through Purmerend).
