Northeast of the capital Amsterdam, the Markermeer extends over an area of 700 square kilometres. In the north the water is bounded by the IJsselmeer and in the south by the IJmeer. The largest lakeside communities include Lelystad, Hoorn and Edam-Volendam. The peninsula Marken off Monnickendam gives the lake its name.

At the Markermeer lies the village of Edam, where the famous Edam cheese is produced.
