A popular town, known for the charming fishing boats lining its coast and the traditional attire still worn by the locals.

Volendam is a popular tourist attraction in the Netherlands, well known for its old fishing boats and the traditional clothing still worn by some residents. The women's costume of Volendam, with its high, pointed bonnet, is one of the most recognizable of the Dutch traditional costumes, and is often featured on tourist postcards and posters (although there are believed to be fewer than 50 women now wearing the costume as part of their daily lives, most of them elderly).

Volendam also features a small museum about its history and clothing style, and visitors can have their pictures taken in traditional Dutch costumes.
