"Volendam" Top 5 Page for this destination Netherlands Local Custom Tip by Nathalie_B

Netherlands Local Customs: 288 reviews and 290 photos


There are many villages, throughout the Netherlands, that show typical Dutch costumes and traditions. They're all different, don't think if you've seen one you've seen them all! Volendam is the famous fishermen village that shows the history of 6 centuries. If you'd like to have some nice memories besides the tons of pictures you'll take, go to the "Foto Zwarthoed". You'll have the opportunity to wear typical (for this area) Dutch costume and to take a picture. Great experience! Especially, try to walk while wearing these cloggs ;-)
Don't laugh too hard, it is me on the picture ;-) I've been to Volendam in 1998, then I couldn't even imagine that one day I'll live in this country. I guess it's all because of the custom ;-)
