Highlights
  • Drive from Amsterdam to the beautiful windmill village of Zaanse Schans
  • Get a glimpse of the traditional Dutch way of life in the 17th and 18th centuries
  • Zaanse Schans is a unique part of the Netherlands, full of wooden houses, mills, barns and workshops
  • View the meticulously restored buildings, most of which have been transported here from elsewhere in the region
  • Stroll past the bakery museum and enjoy the smell of fresh bread, or take a look at the warehouse where clogs are made

The windmill village Zaanse Schans is an open air museum that houses a collection of working windmills, wooden houses, barns, and shops dating back to the 18th and 19th Century. In its golden age, the Zaan Region developed into an industrial area with 600 active windmills: wooden factories powered by the wind. Alongside windmills, you will see beautiful houses painted in traditional colors such as green, beige and light blue.

Your guide will take you to visit the wooden shoemaker shop and in the cheese farm, you will get to taste Dutch farmer cheese. Then it is time to further explore the village on your own. Before you set off to discover the Zaanse Schans on your own, your guide will give you further information on the Zaanse Schans and its unique character, teach you local history and culture, and give you insider’s tips on what to do and where to go.
