The Zaanse Schans is one of the highlights of the Netherlands, just outside Amsterdam. Well explain the living and working community that dates back to the 18th and 19th centuries. 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 or more – there is so much to see, taste, smell and experience! Take a walk through the buildings, watch traditional crafts such as clog- and cheese-making or visit the windmills and traditional buildings.
We specially enjoyed the film about the construction of the sawmill – strongly recommend.
