It was bitterly cold when we arrived in Volendam. Despite the temperatures being already low, it was the wind sweeping in off of the Ijsselmeer that was the real culprit. We weren’t going to let it deter us though. We were here for historical costumes, cheese, fish and traditional Dutch scenes.


Whether you decide to visit Volendam in the cold or when the sunshine is streaming down on quickly melting ice cream, there are plenty of activities that will ensure you enjoy your visit. Today I am over at Holland.com looking at the best things to do in this traditional Dutch village.
