Would you like to explore Volendam and surroundings by bike? Then you are at the right place at Rent & Event. Depart from our office at the port of Volendam and cycle towards the cozy and beautiful places in the area. Monnickendam is about seven kilometers away and Edam is less than three kilometers away from here.
We have different cycle routes for you. Think of a nice trip towards Monnickendam and Marken. During the trip you will pass an authentic mill, an ice cream parlor where they sell delicious soft ice cream and you will encouter large cheese farms. There is also plenty to see in Monnickendam itself. Pay a visit to the picturesque center, go for a bite to eat at brasserie De Waegh or taste a fresh organic beer or juice on the terrace of Bierderij Waterland.
Imagine yourself back in time
Then cycle along the Gouwzee to the peninsula Marken. In this place it seems as if time has stood still. Because of the wooden houses on stilts, the people in traditional costumes and the uneven roads you imagine decades back. Enough to see!
Of course, you can cycle back to Volendam across the dike through Monnickendam, but you can also sail with the Volendam Marken Express shipping company. Enjoy the water while consuming a cup of coffee or tea with old-Dutch apple pie. Meanwhile, the captain brings you safely to the other side. As soon as you have left the port of Volendam, you will be at our office within five minutes.
On to Edam
Do you have less time? Set course towards Edam. There is also much to see in this city. The beautiful buildings themselves are reason enough to go here. In the Edams Museum you will learn all about the rich history of this place. Time for a pit stop? Enjoy a cold drink on the terrace at L’Auberge Damhotel.
Cycling with your children is no problem! Even for the little ones we have a suitable children’s bike.
If your child is not yet able to cycle, but you do want to enjoy the best tours together: then we have child seats for cycling. We can place these on the front and back of the bike.
We also have a children’s bike trolley available where the children can sit together.
