Monnickendam (usually Monnikendam in English) is a city in the Dutch province of North Holland. It is a part of the municipality of Waterland, and lies on the coast of the IJsselmeer, about 8 km southeast of Purmerend. It received city rights in 1355 and suffered a lot of damage during the fires of 1500 and 1513.

Monnikendam was also the name of a number of warships - mainly built at the port of that name - during the Anglo-Dutch Wars.

Monnickendam was a separate municipality until 1991, when it was merged into Waterland. Although it is a small fishing village today, it was an important port in earlier centuries. It possesses a seventeenth-century weigh house, once used by merchants and port officials, and a bell tower that dates from 1591. The fourteenth century church of St. Nicholas, renovated in 1602, is particularly notable. The synagogue was built in 1894. Jewish families named Monnikendam trace their roots to this town.

Het Hof Saenden (Billitonkade 31-40) kwam in 1916 tot stand naar een neorenaissance-ontwerp van D. Stam in opdracht van ondernemer J.A. Laan ter gelegenheid van diens 50-jarig zakenjubileum. Het langgerekte bouwblok met tien woningen heeft in het midden een poortgebouw met klokkentorentje.
