MArken was once an island in the old Zuider Zee (now the freshwater Ijslemeer). It is now linked to the mainland by a causeway. It retains it's island character though with its picturesque green houses, fishing harbour, and its steady pace of life.
- Pros:Scenic, boats, lighthouse
- Cons:A bit touristy in summer
- In a nutshell:Get away from the bustle of Amsterdam
Marken is easily reached by bus from Ansterdam, take bus #111 from just outside Centraal Station more travel advice
