  1. The lighthouse you see is called “the horse of Marken” (Paard van Marken). At sea, seen from a distance, it looks like a horse standing on the water. Strange illusion.

  2. I’ve done that also on a couple of times on trips to Amsterdam. I like to just wander all those little roads aimlessly through the polders. Once I was lucky enough to arrive in Marken at the same time they were having their annual herring festival. Very fun and tasty fish.
