  • June 15, 2013 · 2:00 PM

- What kind of Event is this? -

"Culti's Delight" is the best day of the month! Because on this day you can meat like minded people - and you can experience how to combine basic fun and basic culture!

< = The Meeting Point

- Easy Meetup Point -

We'll meet in the most beautiful located Subway Cafetaria maybe in the entire world!

It's a very good place for drinks and food before going to Marken together. This venue is on the northern side of the Amsterdam Central Station, and next to the place where all ferries take of to Amsterdam Noord. It's also very close to the Amsterdam Central Busstation.

 

- Culti's Delight May: Marken Museum and Boattrip to Volendam -

The day starts with getting together in Amsterdam - and with taking the bus to Marken. Don't forget your OV Chipcard.

After arriving in the Marken/Volendam area, We'll take a fast and proper look together at the Marken Museum.

( => The 2010 daytrip to Volendam )

Free entrance for those with a museumcard! Without this card, the entrance fee is EUR2,50.

We'll also make a small walk in the village. Which really looks like the picture above. Lots of people wear traditional clothes on a daily basis.

On Marken, we'll also stop at a market stand kind of fishshop! Where the fish is being made in a traditional West Frisian way.

After this short visit to Marken, we'll take the Marken Express to Volendam. Inside Volendam, we'll have a drink while the event host will find the group a restaurant.

The day will end with taking the buss back to Amsterdam from Volendam.

- Culti Contribution -

A EUR 2,50 fee is required for attending to Culti's Delight. Read more about this Culti contribution right here. Other than this, you need around EUR 10,-- for the boat from Marken to Volendam, and for entering the museum. During the day you can pay for you own food and drinks.

    Hi Arjan,
    It was very kind of you and the rest of the group to pitch in
    and help the girl-in-distress we encountered in the bus from
    Vollendam. Together with Jose's help we bought a ticket for her
    to Den Haag. Jose and I parted company with her in Leiden, as
    I had to change trains to Den Haag CS and she proceeded to
    Den Haag HS from where she was supposed to catch a tram
    No 15 to Ypenburg.
    Thanks a lot to all for your kindness.

    Hi Arjan, Please be a little more precise about where we plan to meet. Is the meeting point "De Ruyterkade Steiger 10 " within the
    Amsterdam CS premises or do we have to take the subway to get to
    "De Ruyterkade Steiger 10 ".
    Why don't we meet at the "Information kiosk" at Amsterdam CS like we did the last time and all of us together proceed to "De Ruyterkade Steiger 10 ".

      If you enter "Pier Tien" Amsterdam on google maps, and if you zoom in to the 500 feet modus, than you will see that pier tien, which was a restaurant in the building where we will meet, is on a 20 meters walking distance after leaving the central station on the IJ side exit........ You can also just call subway after arriving at the central station, on the number[masked]
