Back in Time

Marken - it's a place I have visited often on my times in Holland. It is one of those places that draw you back and you you don't always know why?
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 and Cons
  • Pros:Scenic, boats, lighthouse
  • Cons:A bit touristy in summer
  • In a nutshell:Get away from the bustle of Amsterdam
