Marken is a peninsula in the Markermeer, and a former island in the Zuiderzee, located in the municipality Waterland in the province North Holland, the Netherlands. The former island is nowadays connected to the North Holland mainland by a causeway.

The history and present of Marken

Because it was an island for so long, the costume of Marken is quite different from many other traditional costumes in the Netherlands. It is, for instance, the only costume with a corset-like bodice.

Terschelling is a municipality and an island in the northern Netherlands, one of the West Frisian Islands. It is situated between the islands of Vlieland and Ameland.

The lighthouse known as De Brandaris welcomes visitors to the island

Tourism became an increasingly important factor in the 20th century. Of the Dutch Wadden Sea islands, Terschelling was very much a latecomer in the tourism field; with agriculture and maritime business long remaining the most important sources of income for the island. However, nowadays tourism is the most important economic activity.
