The harbour pier heads have traditional looking lanterns on wooden poles (the green side outfitted with an old fog signal horn (1930's?) and the red side since 1953 marked with a Maria statue). National monument since 1999 (nr. 511037). The fishing fleet of Volendam can be recognized by VD as vessel registration.
