The Zaanse Schans is one of the highlights of the Netherlands, just outside Amsterdam. Be part of a vibrant and stunning living and working community that dates back to the 18th and 19th centuries. It’s packed with wooden windmills, barns, houses and museums and built in the typically Dutch wooden architectural style, relocated here piece by piece since 1961.
The Zaanse Schans will easily fill half a day – there is so much to see, taste, smell and experience!
Take a walk through the stunning buildings and the unique peat meadow landscape. Come and watch traditional crafts such as clog- and cheese-making or visit the windmills and traditional buildings.
Take a boat trip, dine in one of the restaurants or explore the shops and boutiques.
The vibrant fishing village of Volendam has a lively and busy harbor. Due to its location on the Zuiderzee, Volendam thrived in the fishing industry and trade. You can still feel this atomsphere on the ”Dijk” the center of Volendam and in the many quality fish restaurants. In Volendam we will have enough time for a lunch and for visits to the Volendam Museum and the local Cheese Factory, where you will learn everything there is to know about cheese.
