Volendam is a port town in North Holland (Edam-Volendam municipality) with population around 22,000. Volendam is a very popular tourist attraction in the Netherlands, famous for its old fishing boats and traditional clothing still worn by many residents. The women's costume, with its high, pointed bonnet, is among the most recognizable of Dutch traditional costumes, and is often featured on postcards and posters (though there are fewer than 50 women now wearing it as part of their daily lives, most elderly).
There is a regular ferry connection from Volendam to Marken, a peninsula close by. Volendam also has a small museum about its clothing style and history, and visitors can have pictures taken in traditional Dutch costumes. The town is also well known for its distinctive music, called Palingsound ("eel sound", literally) in reference to Volendam's status as a fishing village. During 1960s, the local group The Cats was a popular group in the Netherlands and abroad.
Highlights: Traditional Town, Keukenhof Gardens
