What shall I see

Our professional and experienced guide will drive you to the village of Zaanse Schans, by air-conditioned bus. After a 20 minute ride, you will be at your destination.

You will exlpore the windmill village Zaanse Schans, which is an open air museum with a collection of working windmills, wooden houses, barns and shops dating back to the 18th and 19th Century. All these buildings were brought here from 1961 onwards bringing back to life this most prosperous period of the Zaan region. In its golden age the Zaan Region developed into an industrial area on a scale never seen before, with 600 active windmills: wooden factories powered by wind. In these small factories many tasks were being executed with the aid of wind energy: wood sawn by machine, grounding spices, oil for food and paint, flower, cocoa powder and many other things.

You will see beautiful houses that were originally built as home to rich windmill owners and merchants. These houses have attractive facades and have been painted in traditional colors such as green, beige and light blue.

Your guide will take you on an orientation tour of the village. Visit the clog museum annex wooden shoemaker shop and in the cheese farm taste Dutch farmer cheese.

Take some free time to explore the village on your own. A 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 about what to do and where to go.
